The 2018 March for Life, the world’s largest pro-life event, will be held this Friday, January 19, in Washington, DC.
Every year since 1973 when the Supreme Court made its infamous decision in Roe v. Wade, pro-life activists have gathered in our nation’s capitol to mark the anniversary in a somber, peaceful demonstration. Over 20,000 attended the first March for Life in 1974 and now the number of participants reaches over 400,000.
The 2018 March for Life will begin with a rally at 12:00 noon on the National Mall and then participants will march up Constitution Avenue to Supreme Court and the United States Capitol Building. Those unable to attend may still be able to join a March for Life event near their hometown this weekend as well.
The March for Life also gathers many pro-life leaders and organizations for an annual conference and expo. You can see the organizations involved here.
Additionally, the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention will be hosting its third annual Evangelicals for Life conference with Focus on the Family in conjunction with the March for Life. You can watch a simulcast of the conference here.
These events celebrate the progress of the pro-life movement over the 45 years since Roe v. Wade made abortion on demand a heartbreaking reality for our culture. But, at 2ndVote, we believe you can support the pro-life movement every day of the year through your shopping habits.
Our Planned Parenthood resource page shows which companies directly support the largest provider of abortions in America. Through their donations, corporations like Bath & Body Works, Patagonia, United Airlines, and more fund not only Planned Parenthood’s abortion business, but the political activism and cover the abortion industry provides for criminal sex trafficking as well.
Remember, five major corporations, AT&T, Coca-Cola, Ford, Macy’s, and Xerox, have publicly distanced themselves from Planned Parenthood because pro-life consumers have engaged them for their support. It is incumbent upon all conservatives to continue reaching out to these companies to encourage them to cease their support for Planned Parenthood’s abortion business, and hold them accountable with our shopping habits as well. You can contact all of these companies through the links to their scorepages.
