On January 22nd, 1973 the Supreme Court handed down abortion-on-demand with their infamous decision on Roe v. Wade.
Every year since then, in what has become known as the “March for Life” pro-lifers gather at our nation’s capitol to memorialize that decision and protest the devastating aftermath.
The very first March had 25,000 activists in attendance.
Since then it has grown exponentially, to a regular participation of hundreds of thousands of activists, with young people coming out in droves.
And there is a mostly untold story of many hundreds of thousands of concerned Americans, who can’t come to Washington each year for the March, because of work, family or other duties.
But they pray in vigils to send off the marchers, they gather at places of worship, they fast and pray as they tend to their daily tasks, schoolchildren at their desks, and much more.
No one but God knows just how many people are part of the March without being there. But it is a vast number….
This coming March for Life (January 22, 2015) will be particularly significant for a couple of reasons.
First, it will be the 42nd anniversary since the Supreme Court legalized abortion-on-demand.
Second, this March will also have the most pro-abortion president in history sitting in the White House.
The first half of his presidency has made his agenda very clear — he has already given the abortion lobby free reign of the White House and our taxpayer dollars.
Barack Obama has made it clear that he will do everything in his power to advance abortion even further.
This year the March for Life will be held on Thursday, January 22nd on the Mall in Washington, D.C.
