Join in Prayer As March for Life 2022 May Finally Pave the Way for Roe to Go
Hundreds of thousands of pro-lifers are expected to converge Friday in Washington, D.C. for the annual March for Life.
The peaceful pro-life demonstration happens every year on or near the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the infamous U.S. Supreme Court ruling that forces states to legalize abortion on demand. Since 1973, more than 63 million unborn babies have been killed in legal abortions as a result.
But this year brings renewed optimism that unborn babies could be protected from abortion again soon. Many hope that, by January 2023, Roe will be overturned – and the 2022 March for Life will be the last under the deadly ruling — sparking a new era of Marches where many states protect babies from abortion.
“We’ve eliminated evil in our country before,” National Review editor Kathryn Jean Lopez wrote this week, hopeful about a Mississippi abortion case before the Supreme Court.
“Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health … is the reason this may be the last January March for Life,” Lopez continued. “Roe was decided on January 22, 1973. If it’s overturned in June, I’m hoping the march will move to June. The march would then be in thanksgiving.”
If Roe is overturned, the need for a March for Life would continue. Abortions will not become illegal nationwide. Instead, the power to protect unborn babies or keep abortions legal will return to the states. The Guttmacher Institute, a pro-abortion research group, predicts that 26 states will ban abortions if Roe is overturned. That still leaves unborn babies unprotected in almost half of the country. . . .
Roe v. Wade may go, but there always will be a need for the pro-life movement and the March for Life. There always will be pregnant and parenting families who need support and always vulnerable mothers seeking or being forced into aborting their unborn babies.
As Lopez said, the pro-life movement always will be around to help mothers and babies in need, banding “together to make abortion implausible.”
