JEFFERSON CITY, MO –March for Life is honored to partner with local pro-life organizers to host the official Midwest March for Life happening on April 14th, 2021 in Jefferson City, Missouri. Marchers will rally at the state capitol to call for an end to abortion in the state.
“March for Life is excited to help with and be present at the 2021 Midwest March for Life,” said Jeanne Mancini, president of March for Life. “This is such a great opportunity for Missourians to advance the progress they have already made towards protecting women and unborn children. Encouraging lawmakers at the local level to craft policies that respect the dignity of every human life is one of the most effective means of building a culture of life.”
Kathy Forck, organizer of the Midwest March for Life, said, “Pro-lifers in Missouri are ready to march for life! Missourians have worked so hard to offer life-affirming options to pregnant women. We have been doing our best to hold the line here in Missouri and keep moms and babies safe from abortion; in Missouri, abortions have decreased from a high of over 11,000 to a low of 39 abortions in 2020. We can’t wait to share the beauty of our State Capitol and the beauty of the Missouri citizens who are all in for Life!”
