Teen Abortion Foes Leave for Washington

St. Louis, MO – The end of last night's mass at the Cathedral Basilica meant the start of a long bus ride for hundreds of St. Louis area high school students.

The more than 700 teens, along with almost 200 parents, are headed to Washington to be at an anti-abortion rally Wednesday.

The St. Louis Archdiocese's program called "Life Matters" coordinated the trip for the youth.

Wednesday's rally will fall on the 30th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision. That's the same day President Bush will travel to St. Louis to discuss his plans for jump-starting the economy.
