Celebrating Birth Mother’s Day!

 

Countless lives have been impacted by adoption!

Did you know that Saturday, May 12 is Birth Mother’s Day? We celebrate all of the birth mothers who have made the courageous decision to choose life and to place their child for adoption.

Celebrating adoption and birth-mothers is at the core of “why we march” each January at the March for Life, and throughout the year!

Birth mother and adoption advocate Callie Jett (pictured above!) describes the mindset of birth moms beautifully in a March for Life guest blog post entitled “What You Really Need to Know About Birth Moms on Birth Mother’s Day,”

“As a birth mom of fourteen years myself, there’s no doubt that adoption is a choice that is difficult and selfless. We have made this choice out of love for our child, not out of abandonment. We place the needs of our child before our own wants or desires. Ultimately, birth moms have an amazing way of looking towards the future, and not so much at their past.”

>>>> Watch Callie share more about adoption at the March for Life Conference.

Countless lives and even society and culture itself are impacted because of the courage and self-sacrificial love of birth mothers. Adoption is truly a noble and heroic decision and birth mothers should be celebrated!

Why Are We Marching in Richmond?

 

In a little over a week, thousands of pro-life Virginians will come together to rally and March for Life at the state capitol in Richmond.

Just two months ago, Delegate Kathy Tran (D-VA-42) was asked in a legislative hearing if her bill HB 2491 would allow for abortion even when a woman is about to give birth and is showing signs of going into labor.

She answered:

“My bill would allow that, yes.”

Watch the exchange in this powerful video from the Radiance Foundation:

 

Will you join us at the first official Virginia March for Life to reject this type of abortion
extremism in Virginia?

Your voice is needed!

We look forward to seeing you at the Virginia March for Life on Wednesday, April 3, 2019.

Speakers Announced for Upcoming Virginia March for Life

 

First ever official Virginia March for Life will take place in Richmond, VA on April 3rd, 2019

RICHMOND, VA – The March for Life, in partnership with The Family Foundation, Virginia Catholic Conference, and the Virginia Society for Human Life, are thrilled to announce speakers for the first ever official Virginia March for Life. Speakers will include Melissa Ohden, a survivor of a saline infusion abortion and Ryan Bomberger, founder of The Radiance Foundation. Melissa Ohden and Ryan Bomberger will join Jeanne Mancini, President of March for Life, Victoria Cobb, President of The Family Foundation, Olivia Gans Turner, President of the Virginia Society for Human Life, and Felicia Pricenor, Associate Director of the Virginia Catholic Conference in addressing pro-life advocates who attend the Virginia March for Life in Richmond.

The Virginia March for Life, to be held on the “Veto” Day of the Virginia legislative session, comes after the controversy sparked by State Delegate Kathy Tran who introduced legislation that would, similar to the radical new law in New York, allow abortion up until birth, for any reason. Governor Northam endorsed this extreme pro-abortion legislation and even went so far as to suggest doctors could make a decision on whether to provide care for a baby that survived a botched abortion.

The March for Life urges every pro-life Virginian to take a stand for life at the Virginia March for Life on April 3. Learn more at VirginiaMarchforLife.org.

Did You See These Pictures?

As we head into 2019, let’s never lose sight of the purpose for why we do what we do – why we march.

We march to end abortion so that the beauty and dignity of every life is valued and protected.

Every human – from the moment of conception – is unique and worthy of love.

Our top posts on Facebook and Instagram in 2018 beautifully communicate this message!

Choosing life changes the course of our future.

We hope you will join us in 2019 as we continue to march towards ending abortion!

March for Life Unveils its 2019 Theme

 

March for Life Unveils its 2019 Theme:

Unique from Day One: Pro-Life is Pro-Science

“Science is behind the Pro-Life Movement.”

-Jeanne Mancini, President of March for Life-

 

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.

Why Do We March?

 

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.

>>>> Will you join us at the 2019 March for Life?

With the contentious Supreme Court confirmation behind us and the midterm elections ahead, it’s easy to get caught up in the heightened political climate.

Let me be clear – it’s incredibly important that pro-life Americans advocate for pro-life public policy and participate in elections!

>>>> Make sure you are registered to vote!

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.

>>>> Join us at the 2019 March for Life!

Together we march to end abortion, and we will.
