Members will Honor Every Life as a Gift in Annual Pro-Life Event

Washington, D.C.—The March for Life Education and Defense Fund announced today that House GOP Conference Chairwoman Cathy McMorris-Rodgers (R-WA), Senator Tim Scott (R-SC), Representative Daniel Lipinski (D-IL), and Representative Chris Smith (R-NJ) will lead the congressional delegation as featured speakers at the March for Life on January 22, 2014 during the annual pro-life event.  They will have the opportunity to share their touching stories and experiences with the global pro-life movement.

“These remarkable congressional leaders are joining our cause to help advocate for the protection of the unborn, and they strongly believe that every life is a gift,” said Jeanne Monahan-Mancini, President of March for Life Education and Defense Fund. “Their commitment to this cause is crucial in passing laws to protect lives in this country.”

On the exact day of the march, the house is set to vote on the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, or HR 36, first introduced by Representative Trent Franks and Representative Marsha Blackburn, which will put an end to abortion after 20 weeks, or five months, based on the child’s ability to feel pain.

“This vote will give us even more reason to rally on the National Mall with the hundreds of thousands and subsequently march to the Supreme Court in celebration of life. We’re hopeful that this is a sign of more pro-life legislation in the future.”

The March for Life in Washington, D.C., began as a small demonstration on January 22, 1974, the first anniversary of the now-infamous Supreme Court decisions in Roe v Wade and Doe v Bolton 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 is a witness to the truth concerning the greatest human rights violation of our time, legalized abortion on demand.

Jeanne Monahan-Mancini, President of March for Life Education and Defense Fund, is available for interviews. For more information or to schedule an interview, please contact Ryan Hughes at RHughes@SBPublicAffairs.com or (703) 739-5920.
