The March for Life
is an annual pro-life rally in support of the dignity of human life, held in Washington D.C. on the anniversary of the decision in the US Supreme Court case Roe v. Wade (the case that made abortion legal in the US in 1974). Each year the pro-life community gathers together in our nation's capitol to show our support for the dignity of human life. Our group will be joining in with hundreds of thousands of others from across the nation for a peaceful and prayerful protest to defend the rights of the unborn.
