“The largest human rights march in the world IS against abortion.” That was the tweet sent out by the Students for Life of America this past Friday. January 21st marked what some believe may be the final anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision, and thousands showed up to show their support at the March for Life in Washington D.C.
By the estimation of the Students for Life, 150,000 participated in the march this year, undeterred by the freezing temperatures and bone-chilling winds. Our own Matt Beardsley, Garyn Coulson, and Dan Axt were on the ground, weathering the storm to meet with all of the big names that showed up to participate.
If you’ve ever seen pictures or attended a march for life yourself, you’re probably familiar with many of the slogans and chants. Specifically, you probably know of the chants and the signs that say, “I am the Pro-Life Generation.” Well this year, there was something different in the air. Garyn Coulson, on the ground with the marchers, said that the new theme was “We are the Post-Roe Generation”.
After such a spectacular response last week, we would like to thank all those who supported the pro-life movement via the #FastForLife campaign. In less than a week, 7,725 people from all 50 states and 20 different countries signed up to commit their fasts and prayers! We would also like to express our gratitude for Solidarity Healthshare, the official sponsors of our live coverage in D.C. as well as #FastForLife. And lastly, we encourage all to continue praying for an end to abortion, for the protection of the unborn, and for the support of expectant and post-abortive mothers everywhere.
“Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching its people to love, but to use violence to get what they want. That is why the greatest destroyer of love and peace is abortion.” – St. Teresa of Calcutta
Queen of the family, pray for us!
