Today, thousands of people across the nation descend on Washington, DC for the 42nd Annual March for Life.
It’s been 42 years to the day since the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision to legalize abortion came down — and passionate activists have been pushing back against it ever since.
In the past few years, the life movement has gained momentum, thanks to gains in scientific knowledge and cultural awareness. The country has pivoted toward a much more pro-life view, with more Americans identifying themselves as such.
The March comes just one day after the GOP decided to pull a bill that would ban late-term abortions after 20 weeks. The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act had already faced a promise of a veto from President Obama, but it was expected to pass the House.
Some establishment Republican lawmakers, lead by Rep. Renee Elmers (R-NC), feared that dealing with this issue could hurt their chances with millennials and women, but they clearly aren’t listening to the American people.
A new poll shows that 60% of Americans support a ban on abortions after 20 weeks, which is just one week shy of a baby feasibly being able to survive outside the womb on its own.
The disappointment will serve only to embolden marchers more, as they brave the cold temperatures in what’s been called, “the nation’s largest and most enduring peaceful protest.”
Over 56 million children have been killed by abortion since Roe v. Wade, but states are making strides every year to protect both women and the unborn from the awful consequences of abortion.
