Students for Life gather in
the Diag to protest abortion
U Vigil shows opposition to
1973 Roe v. Wade ruling
allowing the right to choose
By Kristen Beaumont
,Daily Staff Reporter
1 Students gathered in the Diag last night
for a silent candlelight vigil to show their
opposition to the upcoming anniversary
of the historic Roe v. Wade decision of
The vigil was organized by Students
for Life as a protest against abortion and
a celebration of life, Students for Life
President Andrew Shirvell said.
"We're here to remember the 35 to 40
}million babies that have been aborted
since 1973," he said. "This is just a pure
Z silent witness to gain a sense that there
has been a huge loss in our generation
because we have grown up with Roe v.
Wade and because we have lost potential
friends to abortion."
Shirvell, an LSA junior, said the vigil
has been held for the past four years but
that this year saw the best turnout so far,
with almost 45 students participating.
Lia Santoro, vice president of Students
for Life and an Engineering senior, said,
"I'm just glad that I'm not alone to
remember the 40 million babies that have
died since Roe v. Wade. I think it would
be a shame if these lives went unno-
Shirvell stressed that the students were
not gathered for political reasons.
"We are not all about radical tactics,"
he said. "All human life is valuable."
Other students shared the sentiments of
Shirvell and Santoro.
"We're just out here to show our sup-
port for the dignity of the unborn. It's a
beautiful way to show our silent protest,"
said Erin Robichaud, an LSA junior and
three-year member of Students for Life.
Students from other schools also took
part in the vigil.
"One-third of our generation has been
killed by abortion. These people would
have been our roommates, our friends,
our wives and our husbands," said Matt
Bowman, a student at the Ave Maria
School of Law. "We are here to commit
ourselves to see that the next generation
makes it out of the womb and has a
chance to live and to grow."
Students at the rally stressed they were
simply celebrating the rights of the
"I think the vigil speaks for itself.
There's nothing political about it. There
is a little more to it than conservative
versus liberal," said Rob Shereda, an
