Over 100,000 Americans Will March on Washington This Friday

The world’s largest pro-life gathering is set to take place in Washington, D.C this Friday, January 18th.

The March for Life takes place every year on the National Mall where pro-lifers from all over the country and world come to march on the Capitol to end legal abortion. In 2018, over 100,000 people attended to show that women deserve better than abortion. Also in 2018, Donald Trump made history by being the first President to speak at the March for Life – making him our most pro-life president yet.

What was intended to be a one-time event in 1974, has reoccured every year since and will continue to do so until Roe v. Wade is overturned, according to the website. With the mission to “End abortion by uniting, educating, and mobilizing pro-life people in the public square”, the March for Life is held close to Sanctity of Human Life Day – which falls on January 22, 2019 this year – to show Members of Congress that the American people value life in the womb.

Speakers at the March for Life this year include Ben Shapiro, Abby Johnson, and Alveda King, amongst many others. The March also plans to host bipartisan speakers like Sen. Steve Daines (R-MT), Rep. Dan Lipinski (D-IL), Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ), and State Rep. Katrina Jackson (D-LA).

The March for Life also hosts a conference the day before march “designed to provide marchers with in-depth education on the yearly theme”. While the conference is sold-out, speakers will be streamed via Facebook Live.

The theme this year, #UniqueFromDayOne praises the science behind prenatal development and that “science is on the side of life”.

“From the moment of fertilization, our DNA is present, whether it’s 23 pairs of chromosomes or 22. The unique fingerprint that each of us has – distinguishing us from any other human on the planet, is determined by that DNA at day one! Right from the beginning of life, you are becoming the unique, incredible, unrepeatable person that you are!”

Big League Politics will have more, live from the March for Life on Friday, January 18th around 12pm.
