More than 50 million babies have died from abortion since the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court rulings making abortion legal for any reason at any time during a woman’s pregnancy up to nine months.
To help commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton —which took place Tuesday — a national pro-life group will hold its annual March for Life event in D.C. on Friday. The March will begin with a rally and continue as a march to the Supreme Court building on Capitol Hill.
“Americans across the board from every race, gender, occupation, religion, and background stand up for the unborn, and we are honored to have many of them represented at this year’s March for Life” said Jeanne Monahan, president of the March for Life Education and Defense Fund.
San Francisco will hold a similar event Saturday. The West Coast March for Life will be held at the Hallidie Plaza.
“Participating in these marches is a way to shed light on Roe,” said Mark Harrington, executive director of Created Equal in Columbus, Ohio. “It’s a way to remember the babies that have been killed and parents that have been harmed physically and emotionally from abortion.”
