The March for Life takes place on Friday, January 21st. This year’s theme is “Equality Begins in the Womb.” We will meet up with our friends from Rehumanize International around 11:00 a.m. Look for the bright blue Secular Pro-Life banner at the corner of Constitution and 12th. From there, we will march to the Supreme Court of the United States to protest the injustice of Roe v. Wade.
The next day — Saturday, January 22nd — will mark 49 years of Roe‘s lethal regime. We fervently hope it will be the last. Of course, we know that hope is not enough; we must do the work. Even if our dream of Roe‘s reversal is realized in 2022, the abortion industry will continue trying to kill babies in states where they have political support. Their abortion-pills-by-mail schemes also threaten countless human lives.
Accordingly, pro-life advocates from across the country will gather at the National Pro-Life Summit (theme: “All in for life”) to prepare for a new phase in the fight against abortion. The Summit begins at 9:00 a.m. and lasts all day. Stop by the Secular Pro-Life exhibit booth for free resources! Registration is required.
The National Pro-Life Summit will be held at the Omni. If you are fully vaccinated, bring your ID and proof of vaccination. Otherwise, go to the Blue Room on the West Promenade to receive a rapid COVID test. You must test negative to participate. Secular Pro-Life will be distributing free masks featuring our famous slogan “Call me an extremist, but I think dismemberment is wrong.”
Also on Saturday, from 9:45 a.m. to 11:00 a.m., Secular Pro-Life Executive Director Monica Snyder will speak on a panel about pro-life feminism. The panel is hosted by the David Network Conference, which is open to students attending Ivy League institutions who want to grow intellectually and learn more about pro-life ideals. The pro-life feminism panel will be held at the Busch School of Business. If you are a student at an Ivy League institution and would like to attend, please contact Autumn Cramer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are so excited to make history alongside you. See you soon!
