Every Child Deserves a Voice

 

“Every child deserves to be born. Every child deserves to have a voice.”

>>>> WATCH as this message is proclaimed in our 2018 March for Life “Love Saves Lives” promo video!

As I shared in a recent article for Focus on the Family, “We’ve been at this for quite a while – this year will mark the 45th annual March for Life. Our event is peaceful and nonviolent. Love is our mission. We work to end abortion; we seek a time when abortion is unthinkable.”

Will you be the voice for the unborn child that has no voice? For the expectant mother who needs love and support?

Join pro-life America at the 2018 March for Life on Friday, January 19th.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The March for Life is excited to announce that House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) will address the 45th annual March for Life, the world’s largest annual pro-life demonstration, in Washington, D.C. on January 19th, 2018.

“It is an honor to have Speaker of the House Paul Ryan address the 45th annual March for Life. Speaker Ryan has been an unwavering champion for the pro-life cause since taking office, and continues to utilize his post to promote the inherent dignity of the human person at all stages of life,” said Jeanne Mancini, President of March for Life.

“We are grateful for the significant strides U.S. Congress made in the last year to protect and defend the most innocent among us, and are confident that 2018 will see even more pro-life progress with Speaker Ryan leading the charge.”

House Speaker Ryan will join fellow Congressional colleagues Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler (R-WA), Rep. Dan Lipinski (D-IL), and Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ) in speaking at the March for Life, in addition to Tim Tebow’s mother Pam Tebow, former NFL player Matt Birk and his wife Adrianna, President of the Heritage Foundation Kay Coles James, and Sisters of Life’s Sister Bethany Madonna.

Over one hundred thousand Americans are set to travel from across the country to our nation’s capital for this year’s March for Life, a demonstration that seeks to stand against the greatest human rights violation of our time – abortion-on-demand. The theme of this year’s March for Life is “Love Saves Lives”, embodying the true spirit and mission of the pro-life movement by enlisting the power of love to empower others to choose life.

What If I Weren’t Here?

 

Guest story by Faith

Shared with permission by the March for Life. 

When my mother was pregnant with me, she thought she had miscarried several times. Upon running some prenatal diagnostic tests, her doctor revealed that I had a high likelihood of being born with a chromosomal disorder, such as Down Syndrome.

Delivery itself, the doctor cautioned my mom, could kill her. Why risk leaving 2 healthy kids motherless? Why cause her husband this pain…for a defect like me? Abortion was clearly the only “smart choice.”

My mom named me Faith because she chose life. She recognized my inherent dignity. She trusted God had a plan for me, regardless of my abilities or disabilities. And thank God she did.

Twenty years later, I can’t help but wonder if anyone would have noticed if I weren’t here. Twenty years later, I’m able to speak for the silent who never got their chance.

The pro-life movement is a chance to reflect on that “what if.” What if I weren’t here? What if YOU weren’t here? I can’t help but think about the countless people I could’ve known, but don’t–and how close I was to joining their ranks. I’m glad to be here. I’m glad to have been the exception.

I mourn for those like me who never had the chance to share a story with a happy ending. I march for them. I march because I could have been them. I march because I’m here…and they’re not.

Invite Your Lawmakers to the March for Life

 

A few years ago, the president of NARAL Pro-Choice America — a group that is credited with being the architect of legal abortion — happened to see the crowds at the March for Life. Her reaction was: “There are so many of them, and they are so young,” and she subsequently resigned, realizing that NARAL was failing.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful for every American to see the incredible representation of our country’s pro-life consensus at the March for Life?

Get started by inviting your lawmakers to the March for Life on Friday, January 19, 2018!

Whether your Congressman and Senators are pro-life or not, it’s important for them to witness the March for Life, and to see the strength and beauty of our cause.

We gather in the public square to call for a culture of life and work towards and end to abortion.

This is #whywemarch and we want Congress to know it!

We hope you’ll join us at the 45th Annual March for Life on Friday, January 19th, 2018 to make a stand for what’s most important.

>>>> Please take a moment to invite your legislators to witness the March for Life and share with your friends on social media.
