Since 1974, the annual March for Life in Washington, DC has been held in our nation’s capital. On June 24th, 2022, the Supreme Court corrected a nearly half-century error by an all-male dominant bench that shoved abortion down the throats of every American.
On Friday, January 20th, hundreds of thousands from across the country will participate in the annual March for Life, once more. This time the event will be special for seasoned and callow pro-lifers alike as it will be the first one since the overturn of Roe v Wade last June.
Some may think that the Dobbs decision was the end all with the abortion decision. Not so. The fight to make abortion unthinkable continues. A third of the states in our country have either outlawed or restricted abortion. Texas has led the way as abortions took a 97% nosedive.
Meanwhile, radical pro-abortion candidates were either re-elected or elected on the state or federal levels in many battleground states. Sadly, abortion was steered away in many of the gubernatorial and senate races. This needs to change as we look toward 2024 presidential, senate, and congressional races. That goes for pro-abortion incumbents currently in office as we could use pro-life democrats in congressional and state seats.
Now is the time to continue changing hearts and minds. The annual March for Life that takes place every year is seen as a yearly gathering to recommit to the pro-life cause. No one said that this type of activism was going to be a cakewalk. We were meant to be a part of this moment in history.
A pro-lifer once shared how members of the most significant grassroots movement have endured heavy crosses from persecution, physical attacks (I was one of them attacked by an abortion escort), theft of their own property, stalking, and countless other ways these "domestic terrorists" are intimidating pro-lifers all because they’re sticking their necks out for the most vulnerable in our society. Embrace that possibility. Indeed, the pro-life movement will experience many hardships, and it has had its fair share of them over the last five decades. In the end, it's for Jesus.
As we navigate the aftermath of the 2022 midterms and soon the first full year in a post-Roe society, we have an opportunity to stall the radical agenda of codifying Roe. We can continue making sure that Biden falls short of imposing more regulations that promote the culture of death. We also must keep engaging people while challenging their mindsets. Some groups have laid the group work like Created Equal, Turning Point, Students for Life of America, and many others.
We too must do our part to keep conversations going. That was the big mistake of why many churches were silent on the issue. As a result, 63 million lives were lost. Even a growing number of economists and sociologists know that the United States will soon be paying for this in the next several decades. Immigration will not solve this problem. Even Elon Musk and Pope Francis collectively suggest and agree that families should have more kids.
So Why Must We March on For Life?
We must march on for the future of America. We must march on for the mom who is struggling to give her yes to life, joy, and love. We must march on to stop the culture of death as we cultivate a civilization of love while unleashing life.
We march for the lives lost. We march for those who left the diabolical industry to only pull off the veil of lies that has blanketed the abortion industry thanks to the mainstream media and communists in institutes of higher learning. We march for our peers who were taken from us. We march for the mom and dad who regret aborting their child. We march for a stronger, prosperous, and fruitful post-Roe society. We march to fight Satan and crush him and his empty promises with our rosaries in hand chanting “Hail Mary” ever on our lips. We march for those who can’t march for themselves.
We march for life every day not every January or 40 Days for Life campaigns.
Join the fight today to change hearts and minds while saving lives.
