While the annual March for life has been cancelled this year in Washington, D.C., some states and cities will have pro-lifers marching for the unborn.
The annual March for Life in Washington, which has drawn tens of thousands in the past, will be held virtually with a few speakers. But others in states and local events will be marching.
Dan Bartkowiak of Pennsylvania Family Institute tells One News Now it is National Sanctity of Human Life Week and that needs to be embraced.
“And I think, in Pennsylvania,” he says, “we need to be reminded of the continued, really, assault on human life when it comes to abortion.”
On average, 85 unborn babies are lost to abortion every day in the state, he says.
Other cities and states will host similar marches, too, and that information is available here on the March for Life website.
Asked why pro-life activists should keep speaking out when faced with a pro-abortion president in the White House, and a pro-abortion governor in Pennsylvania, Barkowiak says doing otherwise means society is accepting the “status quo” and remaining quiet.
“And killing babies,” he says, “is not something that we can accept as status quo.”
