Snow or Shine the March for Life will Go On

Washington, DC – The annual March for Life will take place on the National Mall tomorrow afternoon.  Despite the weather, the March will not be cancled.

The theme of this year’s event is adoption. “Adoption is a heroic decision for pregnant mothers who find themselves in a difficult situation,” says Jeanne Monahan, March for Life President. “We want to eliminate the stigma of adoption and encourage women to pursue this noble option.” This year will mark the 41st March for Life in Washington, D.C. Hundreds of thousands of people participated in the March in 2013, and crowds are expected to keep growing, no matter the weather, as young people from around the country participate.

The March for Life in Washington, D.C., began as a small demonstration and rapidly grew to be the largest pro-life event in the world.  The peaceful demonstration that has followed on this somber anniversary every year since 1973 is a witness to the truth concerning the greatest human rights violation of our time, legalized abortion on demand.
