The March for Life unequivocally opposes the abortion industry-backed constitutional amendment on the Senate floor today, which pro-abortion elected officials continually attempt to revive despite the fact that its deadline for ratification expired nearly 50 years ago. This deceptive amendment would be used as a tool by the abortion industry to expand abortion access at the expense of women’s health, vulnerable unborn children, and American taxpayers. It’s time for Congress to listen to the will of the people and prioritize life-affirming action that protects and honors all Americans, including those in the womb.

Pro-life Activists, Legislators to Address Marchers in Phoenix on February 23, 2023.
Phoenix, AZ – Today the March for Life, partnered with the Arizona Life Coalition, announced speakers for the first official Arizona March for Life in Phoenix on Thursday, February 23, 2023.

“The March for Life is delighted to partner with the Arizona Life Coalition for the first annual Arizona March for Life on February 23. Despite the state’s rich history of defending life, Arizona’s strong pro-life protections for unborn children capable of feeling pain at 15 weeks are being threatened and challenged in the courts. We invite all pro-life Arizonians to participate in this March to bear witness to the inherent dignity of the unborn child, and advocate for true life-affirming policies that support both mother and child.” – Jeanne F. Mancini, President of March for Life Education and Defense Fund
“Abortion is the unequaled social justice issue of our time– RIGHT NOW. Nothing compares. Abortion assaults the most fundamental human right of all… the right to life. TODAY, the Arizona MFL shows our statewide community and the state legislature our strong and unified force protesting against abortion. Arizona’s prolife community is here TODAY standing together, and marching to celebrate life. Life is a gift and we believe that even one baby or woman, saved from abortion is worth it. ONE is worth it all.” – Mona McDonald, Board Chair of Arizona Life Coalition.

March for Life Announces Speakers for Historic 50th Annual March for Life – First post-Roe
“This year will be a somber reminder of the millions of lives lost to abortion in the past 50 years, but also a celebration of how far we have come…”
~ Jeanne Mancini, President of March for Life~
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, the March for Life Education and Defense Fund announced the full lineup of speakers for the landmark 50th annual March for Life, which is the first in a post-Roe America, taking place on January 20, 2023. Mississippi Attorney General Lynn Fitch, who won the Dobbs Supreme Court case that overturned Roe v. Wade; Franklin Graham, President of Samaritan’s Purse; Sister Mary Casey of the Sisters of Life; Dr. Christina Francis, CEO-Elect of the American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists; and Gina Tomes, Program Director of the Bethlehem House maternity home, will join Jonathan Roumie, best known for his award-winning role as “Jesus” in THE CHOSEN, and Coach Tony Dungy, NYT bestselling author and Pro-Football Hall of Famer, in addressing Marchers this year. Additional legislative speakers include: House Majority Leader Steve Scalise; Congressman Christopher H. Smith, Co-Chair of the Congressional Pro-Life Caucus; and Connecticut State Representative Treneé McGhee.
The theme for this year’s March for Life, Next Steps: Marching into a Post-Roe America, emphasizes the need in the absence of Roe v. Wade for pro-life advocates to continue boldly marching in defense of the unborn – both on the state and federal level – and advocating for a minimum federal standard to protect innocent life against radical pro-abortion legislation.
“We are overjoyed to welcome these inspiring pro-life leaders at this year’s 50th March for Life, the first in our post-Roe nation,” said Jeanne Mancini, president of March for Life Education and Defense Fund. “With Roe now behind us, we are empowered to save countless innocent American lives by continuing to advocate for commonsense protections at the state and federal level, educating Americans on the intrinsic dignity of all human life. This year will be a somber reminder of the millions of lives lost to abortion in the past 50 years, but also a celebration of how far we have come and where we as a movement need to focus our effort as we enter this new era in our quest to protect life.”
