The year 2020 marks the 100th year since the passage of the 19th Amendment which gave women the right to vote and March for Life organizers announced the theme for next year’s march – Life EMPOWERS: Pro-Life is Pro-Woman – in honor of those brave and staunchly pro-life women who fought so hard for women’s rights.
Each year the March for Life board and staff choose a theme that will best contribute to building a culture of life; and as they do so, they take into account cultural norms and current events to help make their message resonate with Americans. This year, March for Life leadership wanted to draw attention to the fact that science and technology continue to reveal the humanity and life of an unborn person even in its very earliest stages. That’s why the 2019 March for Life theme is “Unique From Day One: Pro-life Is Pro-Science.”
Cardi-B, a 25-year-old rapper and award winning musician used her time on stage this week at MTV’s Video Music Awards (VMAs) to brag about how she not only had the baby everyone wanted her to abort, but that she’s “still winning awards” – thus driving a stake through the heart of the myth that a woman can’t be a mother and have a successful career at the same time.
March for Life 2018 is only weeks away and in addition to an impressive line up of speakers, local bishops have extended a plenary indulgence to anyone attending the March who meets the usual requirements.
