National March for Life

Throughout this week the nation remembers the 48th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion at any stage of the preborn baby's life in his/her mother’s womb. To sadly commemorate this decision and its tragic consequences, there are a number of observances taking place in this region and throughout the nation.

Because we are in the midst of a pandemic which may be peaking and, in view of the heightened pressures that law enforcement officers and others are currently facing in and around the Capitol, this year’s March for Life will look different.

The annual rally will take place virtually and all participants are asked to stay home and to join the March virtually. A small group of pro-life leaders from across the country will be invited to march in Washington, DC, this year. These leaders will represent pro-life Americans everywhere who, each in their own unique ways, work to make abortion unthinkable and build a culture where every human life is valued and protected.

The March for Life Rally and march to the Supreme Court will be broadcast online for interested persons to join virtually. Virtual participants are invited to RSVP at https://marchforlife.org/2021-virtual-events/. On Friday, 29 January, they will receive a notification, in their email inbox, that contains the link to watch the March for Life Rally and march.
