As reported by Lifenews.com, A new enthusiasm for saving lives filled the March for Life on Friday in Washington, D.C. where a huge crowd gathered to celebrate the end of Roe v. Wade.
This January marked the 50th year since the U.S. Supreme Court ruled on Roe and forced states to legalize the killing of unborn babies in abortions. In June, however, the high court reversed its infamous decision and began allowing states to protect unborn babies’ lives again.
Reflecting on this year’s historic march, Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life, said the pro-life movement has huge new opportunities to protect innocent human lives through education and legislation.
“As tens of thousands march today to remember Roe and the loss of life since 1973, we praise the work of pro-life people who give of their time, energy and finances to help women facing an unexpected pregnancy. Those efforts have saved millions of lives and, post-Dobbs, will save millions more,” Tobias said.
Research by her organization puts the number of unborn babies lost to abortion under Roe at 64.4 million.
As happens every year, people from all across the country traveled to Washington, D.C. for the March for Life, including Mike Miller, of Boston. He told the Associated Press that he has been to at least 15 pro-life marches.
“There’s still a lot of work to do,” Miller said. “This is only one step and in the next step, education becomes the biggest thing.”
The AP and others noticed the enthusiasm in the crowd, which included many high school and college students and families with young children. A number of politicians attended, too, including Mississippi Attorney General Lynn Fitch, whose office led the Dobbs v. Jackson case that overturned Roe.
U.S. House Majority Leader Steve Scalise, who survived being shot several years ago by a radical leftist, celebrated with the crowd, noting how his home state of Louisiana and many others are now protecting unborn babies from abortion.
“Boy, did we get a huge victory just a few months ago when Roe was overturned, but as you all know, that’s only the end of the first phase of this battle,” Scalise said, promising to fight for life in U.S. Congress, too, according to NPR.
Because the abortion issue is in the hands of voters again, the March for Life changed its route this year. Previously, attendees marched to the U.S. Supreme Court building; but this year, they ended at the U.S. Capitol, sending the message that federal leaders should restore protections to babies in the womb now that they have the power to do so.
“The March for Life will continue to march until the human rights of abortion is no more,” said Jeanne Mancini, president of the March for Life.
“We know that in every abortion, one life is taken and at least one life is wounded,” she added, according to Yahoo News. “And so we will continue to march, we will continue to march until the human rights abuse of abortion is a thing of the past. We will march until abortion is unthinkable.”
Other speakers included former NFL coach Tony Dungy and “The Chosen” actor Jonathan Roumie.
Currently, 14 states protect unborn babies by limiting or banning abortions, and more are expected to do so this year. Pro-life leaders estimate these laws already have saved tens of thousands of unborn babies’ lives.
Yesterday was a great day of joy for me as the pro-abortion activists were planning the grand finale of a 50th year anniversary march which was surprisingly thwarted by the brave American Supreme Court who will forever earn my respect as they put global public interest given America’s primacy as the world’s most powerful nation on earth above transient political correctness.
Some critics of the historic march opined that since Roe v Wade had been overturned then what exactly were the noble pro-lifers marching for?
The march is highly significant for the following reasons:
Firstly, it celebrates the first anniversary of the post-Roe v Wade era which in an earlier article has already saved about 10,000 babies which is worth celebrating as every life matters.
Secondly, it is a thing of joy as it binds all conservatives all over the world, especially in Africa which is the prime target of the insidious liberal agenda. South Africa legalized abortion as far back as 1996 under the Presidency of Madiba Nelson Mandela. The march for life should spur conservatives in the Rainbow country to commence theirs till that vile law is overturned in the former apartheid-divided country.
Thirdly, it is no secret that the Ministries of Health of most African and some Asian nations are under the influence and control of western liberal interests who use it to push their satanic agendas. For instance liberal backing international donor agencies like Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Open Society Foundations, MRI Reproductive Choices formerly called Marie Stopes International, United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), work hand-in-hand with treacherous African health policymakers to massively push contraceptives at the expense of maternal health as well as have been trying to get the local legislatures to legalize abortion – Nigerian pro-lifers will recall the ill-fated attempt to domesticate the pro-choice Convention for the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) which was spearheaded by Senator Daisy Enahire Danjuma when she was a Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
Fourthly, I want next year’s march for life to reach the crescendo of a global affair that would connect conservatives all over the world as abortion is a serious issue that should be of international interest.
Fifthly, the march for life shouldn’t stop until abortion is criminalized with perhaps a life imprisonment sentence as I oppose the death penalty.
Until the aforementioned reasons are met, conservatives all over the world will keep marching until the end of time.
