Together Strong, Life Unites. That’s this year’s theme for the 2021 March for Life rally in Washington, D.C., held on Friday, January 29. Things were a bit different than usual; instead of hundreds of thousands of pro-life advocates gathering on the National Mall lawn, the event was held virtually, providing a more somber tone for the 48th anniversary of Roe. Vs. Wade.
In an attempt to build unity, pro-life Democrats were prominently featured at this year’s event in an effort to expose the destructive nature of abortion and its deceptive practices. The abortion movement has caused much harm to pregnant women and our culture, even relieving men from their responsibility as protectors. Sadly, America’s new president and his administration are doing more to increase the number of abortions, not only in America, but around the world. Science has been denied when it comes to the beginning of life in the womb. And the Constitution has been violated when it comes to protecting that life.
One of the most powerful moments of this year’s event was a testimony provided by Tim Tebow, the 2007 Heisman Trophy winner and former NFL player who survived childbirth, despite doctors trying to convince his mother to abort her baby because they believed he might cost his mother her life. Thankfully, his mother put her trust in God and had the baby, who doctors described as a ‘miracle baby’ because, when he was born, the placenta wasn’t attached.
It’s estimated that more than 600,000 abortions are performed in America every year, and more than 61 million have been performed since Roe vs. Wade in 1973. But with your help, we can make a difference and be champions for life by protecting the most vulnerable among us.
