Today is the third annual National Pro-Life Bridges Day in which small groups of volunteers will maintain signs on bridges in 50 communities to promote a message of life.

Considering the lengthy period in which people have had to make sacrifices because of COVID-19, including to protect children, Eric Scheidler of the Pro-Life Action League thinks the message is appropriate.

"What kind of sacrifices do we need to be making for our unborn brothers and sisters," he poses. "This is a moment of really kind of challenging America to fulfill that promise -- that every life has value -- that we've been talking about so much. Let's really do it; let's recognize the value of life in the womb and save those children, too."

Scheidler, Eric (Pro-Life Action League)Since America is slowly rising from the pandemic, more and more people are emerging from their homes and venturing out.

"We plan to reach a million commuters or more with this message," Scheidler tells OneNewsNow. "Even though there's always going to be people who complain when pro-lifers are out there with our message, and they'll make up excuses for why we shouldn't be doing it, we know we have a right to do it. We know that we're doing it safely, that we have legal counsel defending us, and we see the urgency of getting this message out there."

Scheidler is asking the rest of America to pray during morning and afternoon rush hours for a successful campaign.
