On January 20, pro-life advocates from across the country and Council for Life representatives will have traveled to Washington, D.C., to celebrate the gift of life and march against the greatest human rights abuse of our time – abortion. The March for Life is an inspiring, peaceful, vibrant, and joy-filled rally of women, men, young people and children. Every year, tens of thousands of pro-lifers have converged on the National Mall and marched on Capitol Hill on the anniversary of the Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling which legalized abortion in all 50 states.

Even with the wonderful blessing of Roe v. Wade being overturned, which allows more freedom at the state level to enact pro-life laws, the necessary work to build a culture of life in the United States of America is not finished. Rather, it is focused differently.

Sadly, the number of abortions annually is still well over 900,000 each year, and that number is expected to decrease only by roughly 200,000 each year in a post-Roe America. 

The goal of the national March for Life is to not only change laws at the state and federal level, but to change the culture to ultimately make abortion unthinkable.

The March for Life is the largest annual human rights demonstration in the world. But this is not just a protest… TOGETHER, WE GATHER TO CELEBRATE LIFE. We celebrate each and every life, from the moment of conception. We still march because we envision a future world where the beauty and dignity of every human life are valued and protected.

Council for Life representatives will participate in many events the week of the March for Life, including the Respect Life Mass at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, National March for Life Rally on the Mall to the U.S. Supreme Court, Rose Dinner, Students for Life of America National Pro-Life Summit as well as various meetings with pro-life leaders.
