 National Men's March

THANK RON DE SANTIS FOR HIS 15 WEEK ABORTION BAN TODAY! TELL HIM TO PROTECT EVERY INNOCENT LIFE

TALLAHASSEE, Florida (LifeSiteNews) – Men across the U.S. are being called upon to rise up in opposition to the evil of abortion and to march together for an end to the legalization of mass child slaughter through abortion.

The National Men’s March will take place in Tallahassee, Florida, on June 11, where men are being asked to make a three-mile march “of authentic love” from a local abortion center in the city to the Florida State Capitol, offering a firm and prayerful witness to the right to life.

Women, children, and men unable to complete the march are being asked to join the marchers later at the Capitol building as they arrive for a “rally for personhood,” featuring speakers including Men’s March co-founder Father Stephen Imbarrato and pro-life activists Pam Stenzel, Walter Hoye, and Terry Beatley, among others.

Organizers are asking men to gather at the North Florida Women’s Services building in Tallahassee at 12 p.m. to then begin the march at 12:30 p.m. in a procession “marked by prayer and sacrifice to raise awareness for the cause of life and for the urgent need to end abortion.”

The group will arrive at the state Capitol at around 2 p.m., joined by families and supporters for the rally.

Bishop Robert McElroy (right) is to be made a cardinal in August, despite his inaction on allegations against notorious ex-cardinal Theodore McCarrick.

We all have a responsibility to speak up when serious wrongs are being brought to our attention, but McElroy didn't.

SIGN this petition to demand Pope Francis not reward a bishop who failed to report allegations against McCarrick

The Bishop of San Diego was told about serious sexual wrongdoing by McCarrick in 2016 when psychotherapist Richard Sipe, who had interviewed numerous victims of McCarrick, sent him a detailed letter, but McElroy sat on that information and is now being made a cardinal.

Appointing him to the College of Cardinals is not only an insult to those who suffered clerical sex-abuse, but also to those who are intent on ridding the Church of such evil.

This decision to make McElroy a cardinal must be reversed, and the only way to make that happen is with pressure from the laity.

SIGN and SHARE this petition to stop the appointment of Bishop McElroy to the College of Cardinals

Sipe told McElory that numerous seminarians and priests reported sexual advances and activity by McCarrick in a letter that also detailed extensive abuse by other clerics.

"I have interviewed twelve seminarians and priests who attest to propositions, harassment, or sex with McCarrick," the psychotherapist told McElroy in the 2016 letter, adding: "None so far has found the ability to speak openly at the risk of reputation and retaliation."

McElroy, who claims there was no corroborating evidence, could have brought the allegations to the pope, or even to the Papal Nuncio, but instead ended the correspondence with Sipe, himself a clerical sex-abuse victim.

It would take another year for the truth about McCarrick to slowly emerge in public.

SIGN the petition to stop Bishop McElroy being elevated to the College of Cardinals

Turning a blind eye to serious allegations of sexual wrongdoing is reprehensible in any context, but particularly when a bishop, a shepherd of souls, does so.  

He also supports giving Holy Communion to pro-abortion politicians, contrary to the Church's teaching, while he has concelebrated LGBT Masses as bishop and claimed Fr. James Martin's attempt to normalize the LGBT ideology is "fully consonant with Catholic teaching".

The sad truth is that McElroy is not fit to continue as a bishop, let alone become a cardinal.

Please SIGN and SHARE this petition to stop the rot that continues to tarnish Christ's Church. 

We must do what we can to clean up this mess now.

In comments to LifeSiteNews, Men’s March co-founder Jim Havens explained the need for men to rise up and to lead the nation in the fight to end abortion.

“We have an ongoing, daily mass murder of children in our nation and world that is not being properly acknowledged and opposed. Children in the womb are no less human, and no less valuable, than any of us who are outside of the womb,” Havens stated.

“In fact, we who are older and more powerful have a grave responsibility to truly love and care for those who are younger, vulnerable, and in need of our protection” he continued, adding that the “vulnerable” includes “thousands of pregnant moms in need who are being exploited for profit every day by the lie of abortion.”

“We must be clear: there is never anything good about murdering an innocent child,” he stated.

Recognizing the grave need for a change in the law, “we are calling on all people of good will to face reality on this, take proper responsibility, repent of what he or she has done or has not done, and resolve to do more to push forward for the end of abortion, making child killing rightly illegal in law and unthinkable in culture.”

For the June march, which will be the fourth national men’s march within the last year, the location of Florida was picked due to its current position as a “key state” in the pro-life movement, “and Republican Governor Ron DeSantis is perhaps the key figure, in seeing how far politicians elected on a pro-life platform are willing to go in protecting the rights of the preborn from conception,” Havens said.

A statement on the march website adds that part of the purpose of the march is to call on DeSantis “and all Republican leaders to lead on life … The need could not be more urgent. Constitutional personhood must be affirmed now.”

“There is a man connected to every abortion. Men are a big part of the problem, and it’s time for all men to take responsibility to be a big part of the solution.”

LifeSiteNews spoke with Fr. Imbarrato, co-founder of the National Men’s March alongside Havens, who also noted the important role that Florida plays in completely overturning abortion laws.

Last year, Imbarrato said, Florida executed around 80,000 babies in the womb in the state’s 55 “abortion mills,” making Florida “far and away the worst ‘red state’ in the entire country.”

However, Florida also has a 62 percent pro-life majority in the State Senate, a 66 percent majority in the State House, and “an overwhelming majority in the Supreme Court of Florida,” the co-founder stated.

Thus, “we should not be settling for 80,000 abortions, we should not be settling for a 15-week ban,” he said, referencing the Florida legislature passing bill H.B. 5, which makes it illegal to abort a child determined to have been conceived at least 15 weeks prior. The legislation anticipates a possible Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade later this year.

Imbarrato stressed that if Roe is overturned, “we need to abolish abortion through constitutional personhood.”

In order to help a full-throated abortion ban to precipitate within the state, Imbarrato highlighted the importance of the march in Tallahassee “to send a message to DeSantis that there are no more excuses if you get re-elected [in November], there are no more excuses if Roe v. Wade is overturned; there has to be an abolition of abortion in Florida through personhood.”

Imbarrato noted that “people are coming from all over the country” to participate in the march: “It’s amazing. People are traveling, staying overnight, chartering busses. We are hoping for a very successful event” and urged everyone to pray and fast for the cause, regardless of their ability to attend the march.

The event’s co-founders told LifeSiteNews that the “National Men’s March to End Abortion and Rally for Personhood” on June 11 is “as grassroots as it gets,” asking that people might “spread the word” to family and friends.

Alongside prayers and fasting, financial donations can be made to help mitigate the costs associated with organizing and advertising the pro-life march. To make a donation, please visit ProtestChildKilling here and follow the links or send a check to their Florida address:
