WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, March for Life Education and Defense Fund announced their 2019 theme – “Unique from Day One: Pro-Life is Pro-Science.” Jeanne Mancini, President of March for Life, joined by Dr. David Prentice, VP and Research Director at Charlotte Lozier Institute, David Daleiden, Founder and Project Lead with Center for Medical Progress, and Dr. Grazie Christie, Radiologist and Policy Advisor for The Catholic Association, discussed how the theme of the 46th annual March for Life embodies the current state of the pro-life movement.
“Science is behind the pro-life movement. We see that medical and technological advancements always affirm the pro-life movement, for example, DNA is present at fertilization and no fingerprint on earth, past, present, or future, is the same. We know, too, a baby’s heart beats at just six weeks and we can distinctly observe it ourselves with ultrasound technology,” said Jeanne Mancini. “As science progresses, we see clearly that every life is unique from day one in the womb.”
“Life in its most vulnerable form, should be protected,” continued Mancini. “To this end, we hope that Patients First Act, HR 2918, and similar legislation preserving the dignity of the human person from its earliest moments, will soon become law.”
March for Life is excited to announce that Ben Shapiro, Editor-in-Chief of The Daily Wire and host of “The Ben Shapiro Show”, as well as Abby Johnson, Founder of And Then There Were None, will be speaking at the 2019 March for Life. Sidewalk Prophets will provide the musical opening for the 2019 March for Life. They have a career spanning three major label studio releases, and are a Dove Award-winning band that has sold nearly 700,000 albums and 1.6 million digital downloads.
The 46th annual March for Life, the world’s largest annual human rights demonstration, will be held on January 18, 2019. With exactly 3 months until then, we will be sharing more and more about the theme and the incredible science that supports the pro-life cause.
The 2019 March for Life is a little over three months away!

It was an honor to attend the swearing-in ceremony at the White House on Monday evening for our newest Supreme Court Justice, Brett Kavanaugh.
As you know, the Supreme Court plays a critical role in pro-life policy and has for decades. The horrific Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton cases in 1973 are the very reason the March for Life first began on January 22, 1974.
For 45 years, we have been marching with the mission to end abortion by uniting, educating, and mobilizing pro-life people in the public square.
However, it’s so important to remember that the cause of life is bigger than the Supreme Court and elections.
That’s why our vision at the March for Life is a world where the beauty and dignity of every human life are valued and protected.
Ending abortion in America will take the effort of every single pro-life person. We can’t put our hope in just one politician, judge, or piece of legislation. Each of us must commit to making a difference for the pro-life cause.
And it all starts at the March for Life.
The March for Life has grown to the largest human rights demonstration in the world – and we need YOU there on January 18, 2019 to be a voice for life.
“Today the United States Supreme Court has gained an exceptional Justice in Brett Kavanaugh. March for Life is grateful to Justice Kavanaugh and his family for persevering through this most difficult confirmation process. We are also grateful to President Trump for delivering on his campaign promise to nominate a fair and independent judge who faithfully adheres to the Constitution. The Supreme Court plays a critical role in pro-life policy and has for decades. We look forward to Justice Kavanaugh’s tenure on the bench and the impact his dedicated public service will have towards creating a country where every human life is valued and protected equally under the law.”
“Planned Parenthood is the nation’s largest abortion business. As the first doctor at the helm in nearly 50 years, new Planned Parenthood president Dr. Leana Wen has an opportunity to finally make women’s health top priority, and close shop on an abortion business that claimed the lives of 321,384 babies while only providing 7,762 prenatal services just last year. More than six in ten Americans oppose taxpayer funding for abortion giants like Planned Parenthood, and Dr. Wen would be wise to heed the will of an increasingly pro-life culture by ushering in a new era of women’s healthcare that focuses on saving life – not ending it.”
A graduate of Yale College and Law School, Judge Kavanaugh currently serves on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. He was confirmed by a bipartisan majority for that position in 2006. Thirteen of his written opinions on cases have been endorsed by Supreme Court decisions.
In addition to his professional qualifications, Kavanaugh has spent most of his career serving the public; he volunteers to serve meals to the homeless, tutors at an elementary school, and coaches his daughter’s basketball team. He also serves as a regular lector at his parish.
The Judiciary hearings that concluded last week demonstrated that Judge Kavanaugh is exceptionally qualified for the role of Supreme Court justice and will no doubt serve as a fair, independent judge who will remain faithful to the Constitution.
During the hearings, Kavanaugh stated, “My only loyalty is to the Constitution. I have made that clear, I am an independent judge.”
This makes pro-abortion politicians and the abortion industry very worried.
The hearings were interrupted by yelling pro-abortion protesters over 100 times and 70 people were arrested on the first day. Plus, Planned Parenthood released a six figure ad campaign against Kavanaugh on the first day of hearings.
So, what will Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court actually mean for the pro-life movement?
As March for Life President Jeanne Mancini shared in an op-ed for the Washington Examiner, “Judge Kavanaugh believes in honoring the U.S. Constitution including its clear definition of what a judge should do — interpret laws, not make them up.”
At the hearing today, Judge Kavanaugh shared, “If confirmed to the Supreme Court and as a sitting judge, I owe my loyalty to the constitution. That is what I owe loyalty to.”
Judge Kavanaugh will make a great justice – one who interprets the law rather than making the law – and he needs the support of every pro-life American.
Day three of the hearings will continue on Thursday. If you are interested in attending the hearings at the Hart Senate Office Building, the public may arrive at 8:00 am to get tickets. Click HERE for more information.

Today was the first day of the Senate confirmation hearings for Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court. Unfortunately, it was clear that the opposition to President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee will do anything to stop the confirmation process.
In fact, Senate Democrats were part of the partisanship with NBC reporting that “Democrats plotted a coordinated protest strategy over the holiday weekend and all agreed to disrupt and protest the hearing.”
Despite the outrage and protests, Judge Kavanaugh proved his exceptional character and qualifications during his opening statement. He shared, “If confirmed to the Court, I would be part of a Team of Nine, committed to deciding cases according to the Constitution and laws of the United States.”
Day one of the hearings has concluded, but they will reconvene on Wednesday, with Senators given the opportunity to question the nominee.
Judge Kavanaugh will make a great justice, just like the President’s first appointment, Neil Gorsuch. He is exceptionally qualified for the role of Supreme Court justice and will no doubt serve as a fair, independent judge who will remain faithful to the Constitution.
It’s critical that every pro-life American contact their Senators in support of Judge Kavanaugh.
