March for Life Assistant Director Bethany Peck in Townhall.com
Townhall.com recently published an op-ed by March for Life Assistant Director Bethany Peck entitled “Categorizing Women Who Seek Abortions as Criminals is not Pro-Woman.”
Each year on a bitter cold and somber day in our Nation’s Capital, the March for Life leads throngs of passionate pro-life Americans up Capitol Hill and to the Supreme Court. The site is where the March for Life began – in 1973, the Court issued its Roe v Wade and Doe v Bolton decisions, legalizing abortion on demand in the United States. We have been marching and working towards a reversal and a culture of life ever since.
When the mostly millennial crowd makes it to the Supreme Court at the conclusion of the March for Life – this past year as a historic blizzard was beginning – they come to witness the moving and heart-rending stories of women who regret their abortions. These women bravely share about the pain, heartbreak, emotional, mental, and even physical suffering from one or more abortions. They are a small sample of the millions of women who suffer in silence from the pain of abortion.
