Senior class of high school “in the middle of nowhere” takes on abortion, asks you to join them nationwide on Dec. 6
Youth gather at the 2013 March for Life in Washington D.C.
Most high school seniors seem to be focused on college plans or the senior prom. Katie Greenwood is focused on ending abortion.
Katie attends St. John’s Catholic High School in Beloit, KS, which she describes as “literally in the middle of nowhere.” But it’s from this small Kansas town that the high school has taken on a new national project, along with the help of their religion teacher, Andrew Niewald, called Catholic School Life Rally 2013.
On Dec. 6, the senior class of St. John’s—all 10 of them, in a school of 40—is asking Catholic and Protestant schools nationwide to join them by peacefully protesting at an abortion clinic close to them. And close is a relative word because the students of St John’s don’t even have an abortion clinic within three hours of them. Katie says:
“We have to journey over three hours to get to the closest abortion clinic, but each year, the entire high school packs up and makes this trek to stand up for the unborn as well as using this opportunity as a means of educating ourselves on the reality of abortion.”
