2023 March theme announced…………

The January 20, 2023 National March for Life theme has been announced!

On January 20, 2023, rather than marching to the steps of the Supreme Court, where we have for decades asked our highest Court’s Justices to undo the destructive decision that was Roe v. Wade, we will now march to a new front in our battle for life, the steps of the United States Capitol. 

We must: 

  • tirelessly build a culture of life on Capitol Hill, and advocate for the advancement of federal pro-life policies. 
  • march in our state capitols, urging our state legislators to pass life-saving protections for the unborn.
  • continue to increase the safety net for moms and babies, especially by supporting pregnancy resource centers and maternity homes in our communities that provide love, compassion, and resources to women, children, and families.

President, March for Life Action

Congratulations to our March for Life President!

Every year the Washingtonian releases its list of Washington DC’s Top 500 Most Influential People across a variety of sectors, including public policy, law, and finance, among others. This year, I am thrilled to announce that our very own, March for Life president, Jeanne Mancini, is featured on this list of esteemed government, private sector, and nonprofit leaders. 

Please join me in congratulating Jeanne! 
Over the last decade, the March for Life Education and Defense Fund and March for Life Action have soared to incredible new heights with Jeanne at the helm. The March for Life began nearly 50 years ago after the United States Supreme Court ruled in Roe v. Wade that there is a constitutional right to abortion. What started as a small, annual gathering of pro-life leaders marching on the nation’s capital has grown exponentially. 

In fact, the national March for Life, held in January each year, is the largest annual human rights demonstration in the world. We’ve also significantly expanded our impact on the state and local level with a growing number of state marches in capitals across the country.  

Though we remain a small but mighty team, the ways in which we have grown are innumerable and unquestionably due to Jeanne’s wise and hopeful stewardship over the last decade. 

We are overjoyed that she is being recognized for her astounding impact not just on the March, but on the pro-life movement at large.  

Regardless of whether the Supreme Court decides to overturn Roe v. Wade this month, we have big plans for the near and distant future. In a matter of months, we will mark the 50th anniversary of Roe v. Wade and by the grace of God we will continue to expand our State March program. Our vision is to someday soon have state marches in all fifty states. You can learn more about our State March program here.

These ambitious goals do not, however, come without significant costs. That is why I humbly request that you consider giving to the March for Life today. With momentum on our side and abundant enthusiasm, we would be delighted to partner with you in building a culture of life, so that someday abortion will not be merely illegal, but unthinkable.

Congratulations, Jeanne!

Fios News Coverage: ‘Prolife Rockland Residents Protest Planned Parenthood’

Here’s the link to the video. Click here

Jan. 22 — Verizon FIOS News — Lower Hudson Valley sent out a crew to cover the gathering of prolife supporters in Spring Valley, who gathered outside Planned Parenthood on Perlman Drive to pray. It was on Jan. 22, the true anniversary of the Supreme Court’s decision in 1973 to legalize abortion in America. (The March for Life this year was on Friday, Jan. 19).

Good for FIOS!  Unlike the Journal News/USA Today who didn’t print a word about any March for Life events, but had plenty to say about the Women’s March that took place the next day. And, as usual, the three major TV networks combined — CBS, ABC, and NBC– had less than three minutes of coverage of the March. CBS had nothing at all.

Well, it’s nice to know that balanced  journalism is still alive somewhere around here — at local FIOS news.

(update 1/28/18) The Journal News (Lo-Hud) has since published an article with extensive remarks from five marchers, March for Life 2018: 5 People Share Their Vision of the Future. Print story appeared 1/27/18; online 1/26/18.
