March for Life President Jeanne Mancini announced that the theme of the 2023 march will center on marching into a post-Roe America.
“There’s a lot of confusion about the inherent dignity of the unborn child,” said Mancini at The Heritage Foundation in Washington, D.C., Thursday. In particular, the March for Life will target the lie that abortion is good for women, Mancini explained. (The Daily Signal is the news outlet of The Heritage Foundation.)
“Our enemy is the lie that abortion is good for women,” Mancini added.
The next steps for building a culture of life will be to continue marching boldly every January, she added. Pro-lifers will no longer march to the Supreme Court, but to the U.S. Capitol and state capitols throughout the country.
January’s event will mark the 50th anniversary of the March for Life, founded the same year as the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision to legalize abortion in all 50 states. Thousands of pro-lifers have gathered in Washington each year to protest the Court’s Roe v. Wade decision, which was overruled in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization this June.
The Dobbs ruling allowed states can make their own laws on abortion. For this reason, March for Life leaders insist there is still much work to do after Roe. At least 16 states and the District of Columbia are working to pass laws that would enshrine the “right” to abortion.
Other states, including Oklahoma, Mississippi, and Texas, have allowed their pre-Roe laws protecting unborn children to take effect following Dobbs.
Mancini said Thursday that pro-life Americans must celebrate the momentous overturn of Roe v. Wade. She added that she believes the testimony of pro-life activists marching in Washington for the past 49 years moved the Supreme Court justices in their Dobbs ruling this June. “This is a moment where our culture has been changed,” said Mancini.
