NCR Today: U.S. Catholic bishops could do more to promote the common good -- especially important as Catholics begin their pilgrimage to Washington for the March for Life.
March for Life
The Field Hospital: Former Secret Service agent trains Maine churches; retired priests now outnumber active in Albany; grief lingers in Newtown; Vincentians meet in Philadelphia.
Making a Difference: Thousands braved the elements to witness to the dignity of unborn human life, and to protest the gravely immoral practice of abortion.
Just Catholic: There was no real coverage of the 43rd March for Life. Isn't discussion about abortion newsworthy?

Abortion opponents marking the huge annual March for Life in Washington on Thursday and anticipating legislative gains by a Republican-dominated Congress were thrown into disarray after GOP leaders unexpectedly withdrew an anti-abortion bill that had been seen as a done deal.
