Nation IN BRIEF : WASHINGTON, D.C. : Anti-Abortion Group Prays at White House

January 23, 1994|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

On the 21st anniversary of the Supreme Court's Roe vs. Wade decision, about 200 anti-abortion protesters knelt outside the White House to pray for President Clinton, his wife and top Administration officials. "We pray that you will deliver our nation from this hand of tyranny. We pray, our God, that you will invade this mansion," intoned the Rev. Paul Schenck of Buffalo, N.Y. The First Family was spending the weekend at the presidential retreat at Camp David, Md. The abortion opponents complain that Clinton's health care reform package would cover abortion on demand.
