“The Arizona March for Life is our opportunity to show the entire state what it means to walk With Every Woman, For Every Child. Over the years, pro-life Arizonans have come together to give a voice to the unborn. In 2024, the mission continues, with a resolute march towards making abortion unthinkable in Arizona, and by highlighting the vital resources available for women facing unplanned pregnancies offered by pregnancy resource centers and maternity homes. We are honored to partner once again with the Arizona Life Coalition to host the Arizona March for Life and invite you to join us in Phoenix to build with us a culture of life!” said Jeanne Mancini, President of March for Life
“By gathering in large numbers together at the State Capitol, we will collectively confront the lies of abortion, sending a powerful message that Abortion is not healthcare; it destroys innocent life! By joining us at the March, you lend your voice to truth, offer support and encouragement to abortion vulnerable women, and inspire the culture to always make pro-life choices. There is a radical, misleading, ballot initiative currently being pushed by abortion supporters in our state. Join us, stand up and speak out to defend and champion the rights of all pre-born! We encourage everyone, regardless of age, background, or beliefs, to join us in this important event. Together, we can be witnesses of hope, uphold the dignity of life, and influence our society to support life choices.” said Garrett Riley, Executive Director of Arizona Life Coalition.
