SBA List Honors the Late Nellie Gray

Over the weekend pro-life activist and founder of the March for Life, Nellie Gray passed away. Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser released the following statement honoring Nellie’s legacy:

“Nellie Gray began and maintained a purity of intention rare to any human rights movement,” said Marjorie Dannenfelser. “She relied upon one power to guide her:  the power of the Holy Spirit. She revealed it to be more effective than all the political strategy this world could formulate – as evidenced by the consistent crowds of hundreds of thousands of pro-life Americans at the March for Life in recent years. Now Nellie is prepared for the glory she did not experience on Earth and that pro-life Rep. Henry Hyde described vividly:

‘When the time comes, as it surely will, when we face that awesome moment, the final judgment, I’ve often thought, as Fulton Sheen wrote, that it is a terrible moment of loneliness. You have no advocates, you are there alone standing before God — and a terror will rip your soul like nothing you can imagine. But I really think that those in the pro-life movement will not be alone. I think there’ll be a chorus of voices that have never been heard in this world but are heard beautifully and clearly in the next world — and they will plead for everyone who has been in this movement. They will say to God, “Spare him, because he loved us!”’”
