March For Life

General Assembly Blog Pause: Instead, A Look At Today's March For Life

The pace of the Virginia General Assembly session is quickening. It's a grueling pace — full steam for 60 days, akin to the 400 meter sprint. It may be short, but it's an all out sprint with no chance to gasp for air. Still, today, annually, is a bittersweet day for us. We have to be in Richmond bringing all we have to bare on the General Assembly, while hundreds of thousands of loving, caring people from across the country made their voices heard for life in Washington, D.C. on the 41st anniversary of the deplorable Roe v. Wade decision. With that in mind, we taking a blogging break from the sausage making at Mr. Jefferson's Capitol, to commemorate the millions of lost lives in this country alone to the heinous crime against nature, abortion. We also salute our spiritual brothers and sisters who braved the frigid climate to march, hear speakers and energize the pro-life movement.

While many of us could not go to Washington because of work, family or the weather, we at least can bring you a taste of what went on today — a virtual March For Life. The Family Foundation urges you not only to view at least some of these great resources (and to read and view at still more sites), but to share these resources. The Walk For Life is nothing if not an educational vehicle to change hearts and minds. We have the opportunity to continue that in our own, less visible, quiet, yet no less effective way.

Abortion kills, by the numbers. What say those who think we must care for the least among us, yet think abortion is an acceptable "choice"?

2. Click the image below and watch and share the terrific ProLifeCon conference from FRC about the pro-life movement, held earlier today in conjunction with the March For Life. It features some of the most prominent pro-life speakers, writers and activists, including two who have spoken at Family Foundation events at the capitol during recent General Assemblies: Ryan Bomberger and Jill Stanek.

A note from FRC's Tony Perkins:

Tomorrow, the Family Research Council will join tens of thousands of Americans on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., to march in remembrance of the tens of millions of unborn children whose lives were ended as a result of Roe v. Wade. Before the March for Life begins, FRC will once again host Blogs for Life, the fifth annual gathering of pro-life bloggers and new media activists. The event will also be webcast live from 8:30-11:30 a.m., so no matter where you live, you can go online to hear speakers such as:

Congressman Todd Akin, (R-Mo.); Congressman Jim Jordan, (R-Ohio); Jill Stanek, Blogger and Speaker, JillStanek.com; Charmaine Yoest, Ph.D., President and CEO of Americans United for Life; Dr. David Prentice, Senior Fellow, Family Research Council; Joseph Farah, Founder and CEO, WorldNetDaily; Kristen Day, Executive Director, Democrats for Life; Marjorie Dannenfelser, President, Susan B. Anthony List, and more.

If you are unable to travel to our nation's capital for the March for Life, you can join FRC on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade by participating in the Virtual March for Life — a creation of our friends at Americans United for Life. To do this, visit the website join the Virtual March, and choose the avatars with the "FRC" T-shirts. You'll be marching with us (virtually) on the National Mall (we promise there won't be any blue creatures or flying things). It's a great way to speak up for life if you can't be in Washington on Friday.
