Magdalena Schutzler, a Macungie native and a junior at Catholic University of America, said she wants to see further steps from Congress before her time as a college student in Washington ends.
The 20-year-old said the issue is of particular significance to her because of her sister, Hannah, who was born with global apraxia, a developmental disability that affects movement.
"It's important to know that everyone is special and everyone deserves life, no matter what," Schutzler said.

Mary Archer and Seth Tavera, students at The Catholic University of America, were there selling T-shirts that featured a pro-life quote from Pope Francis. The proceeds from the sales were going toward the students' mission trips to Costa Rica, Belize and Jamaica.
Archer and Tavera also were there with around 300 to 400 other Catholic University students to show their support for life. "Life is an inalienable right and it's a tragedy that abortion is legal," said Archer. "Plus, who doesn't love little babies?"

Mary Fesaldon, a freshman at The Catholic University of America, held a New Wave Feminists sign proclaiming to be "pro-woman," "pro-education" and "pro-life."
"The secular argument is important because that's how you talk to people," she insisted, saying Christianity alone will not reach a secular audience. "We have science to back us in the pro-life movement that we don't take advantage of enough."
For her, the "new wave" feminism is not about choice, but a return to "equality." Women today do not have "equality of information," but are cajoled into believing that abortion is the only option for an unwanted pregnancy, she said.
