Today’s March for Life Has New Hope

Every January, pro-life advocates gather in Washington DC for the annual March for Life. Their marches began as protests a year after the infamous Supreme Court decision of Roe v. Wade, which legalized the murder of millions of unborn children.

For the past eight years under the murderous regime of Barack Obama, the pro-life movement has had little to give them hope. This year’s theme for the march is ‘The Power of One,’ and this year, marchers have more hope than they have in years past, due to the recent actions of the US House or Representatives and President Donald Trump.

Kristan Hawkins, President of Students for Life expressed the hope and optimism for this year’s march, saying:

“It’s going to be extremely joyful. People know action is coming. . . . [Trump] made his pro-life promises, and the pro-life movement is excited about those promises.”

According to the March for Life website:

“Why do we march? That’s a question we encourage every March for Life participant and supporter to share. We love seeing your #WhyWeMarch tweets, videos, and Instagram posts all with unique stories, and aspects of the pro-life cause.

“Ultimately the thread that unites “why we march,” and that is at the heart of what we do, is love. We march because we love people. We love babies and believe that each and every one should be protected, starting when they are most vulnerable, in the womb. All children, no matter the circumstances that they are born into, have inherent dignity and value.”

Kellyanne Conway, Senior Counsel to President Donald Trump is one of the scheduled speakers at the March and rally. She is the highest ranking member of the White House staff to ever agree to show and speak at the annual March for Life. The organization also invited President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence to attend, but nothing has been said as to whether or not either man will show up.

If you value the lives of unborn children, then I urge you to take a stand and make your voice heard. The unborn have no voice of their own to be heard so it’s up to us to speak up for them. Please help their silent screams of agony be turned into the giggling laughs of smiling infants, looking up at someone who love them.
