Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) — Terri Schiavo was prominently on the minds of pro-life advocates as they marched against abortion in Washington on Monday. Some participants held signs bearing her name and many gathered around a large banner that helped those attending remember the legacy of a woman at the center of an international euthanasia battle.

Bobby Schindler, Terri’s brother, was one of the leading speakers at the pre-march rally.

He said Terri’s parents and family appreciated the tremendous outpouring of support given to them during the years-long legal battle with her estranged husband, who right the right to kill her.

"I want to thank the Right to Life movement here in the United States and abroad for your prayers and support for my sister, Terri Schiavo, and our efforts to try save her life," Bobby told the massive crowd.

"We lost Terri, but this does not mean God did not hear your prayers," he explained.

Schindler told the tends of thousands of pro-life advocates that Terri’s family will continue to work for the disabled and protect others from losing their lifesaving medical treatment.

"Your prayers sustained our family, and we are here today to tell you that we are going forward to fight against care rationing, euthanasia, and medical killing," he said. "We have established The Terri Schindler Schiavo Foundation to help others avoid the same fate my sister endured."

"We invite you to join us in this all important battle for the lives of our weak, vulnerable, and disabled brothers and sisters," he said.
