President, March for Life Action
|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! |

You’ll see the Rockland Right to Life banner passing before the Supreme Court at around 3:30 on the timeline.
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.
Jan. 19 — The marchers from Rockland County reach the end of the March for Life 2018 — the U.S. Supreme Court where the Roe v. Wade decision made abortion legal across America on Jan. 22, 1973. Thousands of marchers have been coming to Washington, D.C, for the March, held on or around that date for the past 45 years, to stand up for life.
We are filled with pride and gratitude for this year’s group from Rockland and the students from Albertus Magnus who have kept the faith and traveled to Washington to represent us all. We honor their commitment, their passion, and their unshakeable faith that one day the legal protection of the unborn will be restored.
(update 1/29/18) Two Rocklanders, Joanne Clemente and Carolyn Pappalardo, speak at length about the March in this Journal News article here.
The weather this year was glorious. And the speakers at the Rally for Life included Pres. Donald Trump, the first sitting president to deliver an address live to the March for Life. “Under my administration, we will always defend the very first right in the Declaration of Independence, and that is the right to life,” Trump said, and he announced he had proposed new federal rules — and an enforcement office — to protect the conscience rights of doctors, nurses, and other health professionals who object to performing abortions. Trump’s full speech is here.
On this day the House of Representatives passed the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act to protect babies who are born alive during failed abortions. The vote, went along party lines, but six prolife Democrats voted for this bill resulting in a 241-183 victory for the unborn. Unfortunately, Rockland’s representative in the House, Nita Lowey, voted against this humane and eminently sensible legislation.
More photos of Rocklanders at the March for Life appear below, and we hope to post more over the next few days. Please check back. The photos are by Francis Wong. Please click on a photo to enlarge it, and then scroll through the slide show.
