These mid-term elections are critical for the pro-life effort in this post-Dobbs world. Your vote matters. Here in New York, we will elect those who make decisions on critical issues such as assisted suicide and the future of pro-life pregnancy centers.
On behalf of the USCCB, Archbishop Lori’s has called out President Biden‘s commitment to codify a national right to abortion after the election: “The President is gravely wrong to continue to seek every possible avenue to facilitate abortion, instead of using his power to increase support and care to mothers in challenging situations…” (read the restof the statement)
Please also keep in prayer important elections throughout the country.
Several states have important abortion related constitutional amendments on the ballot for Nov 8. Check out this site for an updated map of the latest abortion restrictions throughout the US post-Dobbs.

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.
