Thousands upon thousands of pro-lifers are preparing for the March for Life 2020 to make their presence known and voices heard in defense of the unborn and their mothers. The 47th annual March for Life in Washington, DC takes place on January 24th.
This year’s theme, “Life Empowers: Pro-Life is Pro-Woman” carries a special historic moment with it. 2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment of the Constitution which guarantees women the right to vote. The movement to pass the 19th Amendment was led by women suffragists, considered the early pioneers of the feminist movement, who understood that abortion ends a life and harms women.
To delve into the details of this year’s March and today’s pro-life movement we speak with Jeanne Mancini, President of the March for Life.
Then in our mailbag segment, we answer questions regarding end-of-life care decisions and POLST forms that many doctors ask patients to fill out.
We wrap up the show with our bricklayer segment, giving you practical tips on how to begin building bridges between faith and politics one brick at a time. This week we discuss how to get involved with a local March for Life.
