Carolyn Zolbe, marcher in the March for Life and Arlington resident, thinks this about President Barack Obama: “I think he’s a child of God.”

Zolbe’s daughter, Grace Doherty, isn’t quite as neutral in her assessment:

“If you don’t view the value of life, how could your other views have any quality.” Zolbe, who wears a winning smile to accompany her mom-thanking sign, tells her daughter to pirouette for the camera: Doherty, for her part, wears a string of bloody baby heads dangling down her back, with a sign that says, “Some choice.”

Having noted that I am the daughter of someone, Zolbe asked for my mother’s name so that she could pray for my mother, “because she chose life.”
