One month. Two coasts. Three State Marches.
Across the span of one month and two coasts, we hosted three incredible State Marches for Life in California, Virginia, and Pennsylvania—and our State March program is just getting started!
Working with local pro-life organizations, meeting hundreds of pro-life marchers from each community, and affecting pro-life policy at the state-level has been both an invigorating and humbling experience for our whole team. Here’s to many more State Marches in 2022!
In the meantime, I wanted to give you a brief snapshot of the California, Virginia, and Pennsylvania Marches for Life.
California March for Life
On August 25th, we gathered in Sacramento for the first-ever California March for Life. We encouraged hundreds of marchers to contact their local lawmakers about a radical, pro-abortion bill that would have forced health insurance providers to pay for abortions in their entirety, and the bill was halted THE VERY NEXT DAY!
Virginia March for Life
Pennsylvania March for Life
On September 27th, we saw our largest State March crowd this year at the first-ever Pennsylvania March for Life. PA State Representative Kathy Rapp, who has been in office for well over a decade, remarked on stage that it was “the largest rally [she] has ever seen in Harrisburg.” Even Pennsylvania’s pro-choice governor saw the crowd and responded against their pro-life witness!
Beautiful weather paired with the courageous presence of pro-life lawmakers on stage and powerful testimonies from abortion-healed speakers like Toni McFadden and Abby Johnson made the day as impactful as it was.
There is one reason why these State Marches are so beautiful and so fruitful: you. We are honored to march beside you and give joyful witness to the beauty of life. Thank you for marching with us. Each step brings us closer to each other and to the day when the heartbreak of abortion will be unthinkable.
