The theme of this year’s march is “Unique from Day One,” to emphasize the settled biological fact that the pre-born are living, complete, and distinct human beings starting at fertilization.
“Science is on the side of life,” the March for Life Defense & Education Fund declares. “Life, in its most vulnerable form, should be protected. That, in essence, is why we march. We march to end abortion, with the vision of a world where the beauty, dignity, and uniqueness of every human life are valued and protected.”
Speakers for the March include Sen. Steve Daines of Montana; Reps. Chris Smith of New Jersey and Dan Lipinski of Illinois; Louisiana state Rep. Katrina Jackson; conservative commentator Ben Shapiro; And Then There Were None founder and former Planned Parenthood insider Abby Johnson; Martin Luther King’s niece Dr. Alveda King of Priests for Life; American College of Obstetricians & Gynecologists fellow Dr. Kathi Aultman; Princeton Pro-Life president Ally Cavazos; Carl Anderson of the Knights of Columbus; and Archbishop Joseph Naumann of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.
