March for Life Is Today

Stop abortion now sign held by pro-life demonstrator
The 47th annual March for Life, themed “Life Empowers: Pro-life is pro-woman,” is scheduled to take place today, January 24, 2020, at the National Mall in Washington, D.C., starting around noon.

Why this theme? Said Jeanne Mancini, president of March for Life ,“This is the year where we celebrate the centennial anniversary of the 19th Amendment, which created a woman’s right to vote. So it’s a great opportunity to go back and look at the suffragist, the early feminist, the early female leaders who recognize the inherent dignity of women and the inherent dignity of the unborn.”

And for the first time in history, a U.S. president will attend the event in person and speak at the event. “We are deeply honored to welcome President Trump to the 47th annual March for Life," said Mancini.

In addition to President Trump, rally speakers include federal and state officials such as Congressmen Steve Scalise, R-Louisiana, and Chris Smith, R-N.J., as well as Louisiana state Senator Katrina Jackson and Donna Hutto Edwards, Louisiana’s First Lady; abortion survivors Claire Culwell and Melissa Ohden; along with representatives of pro-life organizations and pastors.

The peaceful march to the U.S. Supreme Court building begins at 1 p.m.
