The theme for next year’s March for Life, the largest annual pro-life rally in the United States, will be centered on historic female empowerment.
In an announcement made Tuesday, the March for Life organization explained that the theme of “Life Empowers: Pro-life is pro-woman” came from 2020 marking 100 years since the passage of the 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote.
“As we celebrate this great moment in history, we remember and honor the suffragists, the original feminist leaders who recognized the inherent dignity of the unborn and that abortion not only ended a life but harmed women,” the March for Life said on Instagram.
“The pro-life movement continues their legacy, recognizing that equal rights begin in the womb. That, in essence, is why we march. We march to end abortion, with the vision of a world where the beauty, dignity, uniqueness, and rights of every human life are valued and protected.”
March for Life President Jeanne Mancini and Brandi Swindell, founder and CEO of Stanton Healthcare, explained in a column that as part of the theme, they will be spotlighting the pro-life views of suffragists from the 19th and early 20th centuries.
“Throughout the year, the March for Life will highlight the pro-life views of the suffragists and the way in which the pro-life movement is the true heir of these earliest feminists,” wrote Mancini and Swindell in an op-ed piece published by The Washington Examiner on Tuesday.
“Just as the suffragists peacefully advocated for women’s equality — and made great progress — pro-life advocates peacefully advocate for equality for the unborn.”
