On January 27, 2017 we gathered once more in Washington, DC to demonstrate on behalf of life.  The 44th Annual March for Life was especially robust, diverse, and young — like the face of the Pro-Life movement at large!

We have come a long way since 1974…and remain so grateful to those pioneers of the movement, especially Nellie Gray (1924-2012), founder of the March for Life.

Our IVE group was mostly comprised of post-1973 young people who recognize that they survived what many of their peers did not.  Truly we can look at these photos and hear them say: “I am the Pro-Life Generation” (signs and slogan made well-known through the Students for Life).

May our joy, unity, and purpose in the cause for Life continue to bear fruit in the protection of human life from conception to natural death.  There is a better way, women deserve better, each person deserves better…because life itself is the beginning of all other human rights.  Learn more about the annual March and the year-round Movement.our-lady-of-guadalupe-face

May Our Lady of Guadalupe, Great Patroness of the Americas and Patroness of the Unborn, pray for us and for our nation.
