This January 24th the 2020 March for Life will continue to play a critical role in building a culture of life in our great nation. Unending shifts in our culture, both morally and politically, and the consistent strategies and practices of Planned Parenthood continue to well-up an incessant, heart-felt sense of urgency to stand up for life once again in 2020. The results of past mid-term elections reveal this sobering fact and March for Life Action President Tom McClusky shared then, his analysis of the new divided Congress:
“No pro-life protection will be safe with the Democrats now in control of the House and the Republicans will need to play constant defense… And all the great things this administration has done for the cause of life, from reducing the U.S. taxpayer dollars going to foreign abortion entities to proposing new Title X rules protecting the unborn, will be under fire."
Our elected leaders pledged to uphold the Hyde Amendment and to appoint pro-life Supreme Court Justices. The appointment of Justice Kavanaugh is truly an answer to our prayer, including prayers offered each year during the March For Life. With President Donald Trump’s enduring pro-life posture, and the appointment of Justice Kavanaugh, we continue to be optimistic with respect to Pro-Life issues, and specifically, the overturning of Woe vs. Wade.
We encourage CCGF congregants to take advantage of our unique, can’t-miss opportunity to witness for life in a tangible way and join hundreds of thousands of others in our nation’s capital this year’s March For Life on Friday, January 24th. 2020 will mark the 100th anniversary of women’s right to vote with the passage of the 19th Amendment of the Constitution! The original women suffragists understood that abortion ends a life and harms women. Today, the pro-life movement is following in the footsteps of the suffragists as we advocate for equality for the unborn, knowing that equal rights for women begin in the womb. Like the original feminists, the pro-life movement knows that women and society deserve better than abortion, and that life is truly the empowering choice for women, babies, and society.
Science Is Giving the Pro-Life Movement a Boost
Advocates are tracking new developments in neonatal research and technology—and transforming one of America's most contentious debates.
We believe that the Church is called, “for such a time as this,” to stand with the suffering and the perishing, with a united voice to call upon our government to stop the taking of innocent life from the place where it should be most protected - its own mother's womb. Since its inception, Roe v. Wade has seen more than 63 million Americans systematically removed from our midst. This great tragedy is certainly one that we dare not remain silent about before a just God. The 2020 March for Life is an appropriate means through which we can make our voices heard as we join with hundreds of thousands in a peaceful but powerful protest to declare unequivocally that no matter how long it takes, we will stand for the voiceless. Please plan now, register today and commit to joining us as we stand, march and pray for those who cannot.
March For Life 2020 Theme:
"Life Empowers: pro-life is pro-woman."
Organizers of the March for Life have chosen “Life Empowers: Pro-Life Is Pro-Woman,” for the 2020 rally and March in Washington. In embracing the theme, Jeanne Mancini, president of the March for Life Education Fund, cited the coming centennial of the 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote, and the views of early suffragists, including the best-known figure of the movement, Susan B. Anthony:
“The present moment is marked by a profound confusion of what it means to be pro-woman,” Mancini said at a recent U.S. Capitol panel discussion. “We've come a long way from ‘Safe, legal and rare’ to ‘Shout your abortion.’ Our hope and prayer for this year’s theme, is that it will be a healing remedy for the wounding and deceptive messages about women coming from the abortion industry and beyond.”
