January 18 marks the 46th annual March for Life held in Washington, D.C. The rally champions life, especially of the unborn, by challenging Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court case that legalized abortion.
Its a march for women, by women. Women support unborn life regardless of race or sexual orientation. They are Republicans and Democrats, religious and secular, feminists and those who shrug off the label. But this past years media coverage disguises women as a rarity if not an oddity in the pro-life movement.
The medias narrative echoes abortion activists: out-of-touch men are the pro-life movement. Just after Christmas, #ShoutYourAbortion co-founder Amelia Bonow blamed her abortion troubles on old white dudes in the government.
But pro-life women exist. An Aug. CBS/Refinery29 poll revealed 72 percent of millennial women are likely in favor of abortion restrictions. On Jan. 15, a Marist poll found 75 percent of Americans including women agree abortion should be limited to the first three months of pregnancy. Nationally, women lead the pro-life movement, like March for Life president Jeanne Mancini.
Pro-life leader Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood director, will speak at the march she called inherently pro-women.
Students for Life President Kristan Hawkins added the march is the most pro-woman event in the nation because we want help all women, no matter their stage of development.
It's time the media and womens movements acknowledged the pro-life women who march for life because they believe women's rights and human rights begin in the womb. They dont march specifically for women or female fetuses. They march because, from their beginning, women are persons just as much as men.
