IN THE NAME OF LIFE More than 1,000, including bishop, clergy, parishioners, headed south for march By Elizabeth Fazzini Managing Editor GREENSBURG — Andrea Pritts said she’s encountered many women who regret having an abortion. And as executive director of Alternatives.Yes, a preg-nancy support center in Connellsville, she’s talked with a lot of women. In contrast, “We have yet to encounter someone who regrets having their child,” she added, even women who at one time were in tears thinking they couldn’t have the child and abortion was their only alternative. Pritts will be traveling with her daughters, Alexandrea, 17, and Brianna, 14, and youth from the partner parish-es of St. Pius X and Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mount Pleasant, to the 43rd annual March for Life in Washington, D.C., on Jan. 22. ey will be joined by Bishop Edward C. Malesic, clergy and more than 1,000 people from the Diocese of Greensburg who also are heading south in support of the sanctity of human life. e March for Life is a “peaceful demonstration to share the truth concerning the greatest human rights violation of our time, legalized abortion on demand,” according to its website. e march is held on the anniversary of the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion in the Roe v. Wade case. Each year hundreds of thousands of people attend the march. Continued on page 4 Bishop Edward C.
