March for Life announces 2021 theme
The March for Life has been held every January, around the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, since 1974. Luckily, the March itself always takes place outdoors, with pro-life advocates walking down the National Mall toward the Supreme Court building — and since outdoor protests like Black Lives Matter have not led to COVID-19 spikes, I believe the March for Life can continue to operate safely. But the ecosystem of indoor events that has grown up around the March for Life over the years is another matter. Those auxiliary events have largely been cancelled (the National Pro-Life Summit) or gone virtual (the O’Connor conference at Georgetown). To be clear, that’s the right decision; I am not complaining, and I know this is a minor inconvenience in the grand scheme of things. I am merely, as a human being, struggling to process all the changes the pandemic has thrown my way.
