“Life unites and calls people of goodwill to a common mission: respect for the inherent dignity of the human person, born and unborn, should unite all persons, regardless of political party.”

Washington, D. C. – Today, the March for Life Education and Defense Fund announced the congressional speakers for the 48th annual March for Life’s virtual rally on January 29, 2021. Those speaking at the virtual rally include Representative Chris Smith (R-NJ), a long-time pro-life champion in the U.S. House of Representatives; Representative Kat Cammack (R-FL), whose life was nearly lost to abortion and ran for public office in large part because of the life issue; Kentucky House of Representatives Minority Whip Angie Hatton, a Democrat who is currently serving her third term in the Kentucky House of Representatives, where she supported numerous bills to protect women and the unborn, as well as babies that survive an abortion; and Hawaii State Senator Mike Gabbard, a Democrat representing Hawaii’s 20th Senatorial District who has a long history of defending life, including signing a letter asking the Democratic Party to reject abortion extremism. He is also the father of former U.S. Representative Tulsi Gabbard.
Each of these congressional and state leaders fill critical roles in the public square because of their efforts to protect every human life. The theme for this year’s March for Life is Together Strong: Life Unites and it highlights the importance of each person in building a culture of life.
“We are honored to welcome such devoted public servants to speak at the 48th annual March for Life,” said Jeanne Mancini, president of March for Life who will emcee the virtual rally. “These leaders exemplify the diversity and strength of the pro-life movement. Life unites and calls people of goodwill to a common mission: respect for the inherent dignity of the human person, born and unborn, should unite all persons, regardless of political party.”
