THE 45TH ANNUAL MARCH FOR LIFE: JANUARY 19TH IN WASHINGTON, D. C.
January 9, 2018
Pray that the impact of thousands will inspire our nation to continue its fight to reverse the Roe v. Wade decision.
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” (Jer 1:5)
“The 45th annual March for Life, the world’s largest pro-life demonstration, will take place on January 19 in the nation’s capital. The theme for this year is “Love Saves Lives: Life Is the Loving, Empowering and Self-Sacrificial Option,” according to the organization’s president, Jeanne F. Mancini.”

The march held on a Friday comes ahead of the January 22 anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s 1973 ruling in Roe v. Wade and its companion case, Doe v. Bolton, that invalidated state and federal restrictions on abortions, legalizing abortion virtually on demand. Since that time, there have been more than 57 million abortions that have destroyed the lives of innocent unborn children.
