| The March for Life began in Washington, D.C., as a small demonstration and rapidly grew to be the largest pro-life event in the world. The peaceful demonstration that has followed on (or near) the somber anniversary of Roe v. Wade every year since 1973 is a witness to the truth concerning the greatest human rights violation of our time, legalized abortion on demand.

Marchers go to Washington to rally and march for life and to visit with their elected officials in the Congress.

The next National March for Life, commemorating the 46th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, will take place on January 18, 2019 at the National Mall in Washington, D.C.at the Washington Monument. The program begins with a rally at 12 noon, and there will be a time of musical reflection at 11:45 a.m. There will be jumbo-trons for easier viewing. The march to the Capitol building follows.

The theme this year is “Unique From Day One”. The focus will be on the fact that science backs up the pro-life claim that life begins at conception. More info about this year’s March for Life and other associated events is available at marchforlife.org/mfl-2019/
