The anniversary of twin decisions Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton are quickly approaching, and organizers are gearing up for huge crowds at events across the nation. FFL will be there to deliver our own twin messages, “Peace Begins in the Womb™” and “Women Deserve Better® than Abortion.”
FFL urgently needs volunteers to help us distribute placards, hold the banner, and march with us at the March for Life in Washington, D.C. on Friday, January 19.
And we need volunteers at the FFL booth to distribute information and bumper stickers at the Info Faire before the Walk for Life West Coast in San Francisco on Saturday, January 27.
If you feel inspired to help us in D.C. or San Francisco to get out our messages that “Peace Begins in the Womb” and “Women Deserve Better than Abortion,” please email firstname.lastname@example.org and send your full name and a cell number to use in case we need to text, call, or email volunteers during the event.
In addition, John Stanek is organizing an FFL presence in Minneapolis-St. Paul. Contact us if you can join him!
If you, like John, are inspired to organize FFL folks in your area for events like OneLife LA, March for Life Chicago, Denver, or at the Vermont State House, etc., let us know ASAP so that we can email those in your area/state and ship you some placards! Check out the nationwide list of March for Life events if you want to take part where you live.
Let us know which event you are attending. We will send you detailed information about meeting up when you let us know you’re volunteering!
And I am honored to have been invited to make the “Feminist Case Against Abortion” at the Cardinal O’Connor Conference on Saturday, January 20. The largest student-led conference will be held once again at Georgetown University. You can register here.
If you can’t make it, cheer us on as you watch OneLife LA, Walk for Life West Coast, and the D.C. March for Life on EWTN. (And you may read my speech in the latest issue of The Human Life Review!)
While many feel joy seeing old friends and allies at the various Marches across the United States in commemoration of the Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton decisions, which eliminated legal protection for women and children through all nine months of pregnancy for any reason, we all know in our hearts that this is a solemn occasion — and one we hope some day we need not host.
This year, let us rededicate ourselves. With each step we take, let us get closer to a day when abortion is unthinkable. March forth!
