An anti-war march officially booted out a pro-life group that wanted to participate. Apparently, in their minds, you can’t be against the violence of war unless you support the violence of abortion.
An anti-war march will be held in Pittsburgh on the first of July. Local advocacy groups are sponsoring it. But the organizers just booted one sponsor: Rehumanize International.
As Marlo Safi reported in The Pitt Maverick: “Rehumanize International said the march organizers had retracted the sponsorship after discovering they were anti-abortion.”
In January, Rehumanize International was also excluded from the Women’s March on Washington. They were known as Life Matters Journal at the time.
Executive Director Aimee Murphy says her team will attend the march anyway. I spoke with her on the phone Thursday evening.
“We as an organization embrace the consistent life ethic,” she said. This philosophy isn’t limited to the abortion issue. “We need to respect every human being’s life from conception to natural death.” That means opposing “all forms of aggression and violence,” including unjust war.
