We are only 8 weeks away from the world’s largest pro-life rally! The March for Life is held in Washington, D.C. every year on the tragic anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court decisions, Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton that legalized abortion on demand. Whether you attend every year or 2015 will be your first, make sure you know these eight things about the 2015 March for Life!
1. First and foremost, until December 31, you can enter to win a $500 travel voucher, 2 nights at the Downtown DC Renaissance Hotel, and backstage passes to the March for Life rally!
3. 2015 is also the 25th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, landmark legislation that prohibits discrimination based on disability. Yet babies diagnosed with disabilities, or “perceived disabilities,” in the womb are targeted and aborted at rates of nearly 60%-90%.
4. You can download the March for Life Trip Planner to assist with all aspects of planning, and making the most out of your trip!
5. On January 21, 2015, you can attend the March for Life Conference, which consists of a Law Conference for law students and legal advocates, Capitol Hill 101 legislative advocacy training, a Culture of Life seminar on the 2015 theme, and a Youth Rally. All events are free, but you need to register.
