Pro-Life Demonstration ‘March For Life’ Confirms Date for 2021

The world's largest human rights gathering will be held in 2021 despite concerns about the ongoing pandemic.

In celebration of its 48th year, the annual March for Life will be held on January 29, 2021. The march happens annually, in observance of the anniversary of the US Supreme Court’s 1973 decision to mandate legal abortion nationwide. 

Described as the world’s largest annual human rights demonstration, the 2021 March for Life comes with the theme “Together Strong: Life Unites.” It will serve as a “springboard to communicate and to educate about the most pressing needs are of our time.” (Read: Want to learn more about the abortion issue?

“This year, with 2020 that’s been so unusual in many different ways, the idea of uniting together, and how each of us brings something different to the table, how the variety is beautiful and how together we’re stronger—it just seems like the right the theme,” says Jeanne Mancini, president of March for Life.

COVID-19 Pandemic

According to Mancini, many have asked if there will even be a March for Life in 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We marched during the blizzard of 2016, we’ve marched during government shutdowns, we marched after 9/11, we will march again this year,” Mancini said. “We’ve marched for 47 years, and no sacrifice is too great to fight this human rights abuse of abortion.” (Read: Church Applauds Cancellation of Vaccine Made From Aborted Fetuses)

Mancini also clarified that speakers for the march are yet to be announced. Despite this, she has assured everyone that esteemed artists like Matthew West, a Christian singer and songwriter, will be performing at the event.

In a statement, West said that he is “honored” to be performing at the March for Life.

“This is an important event and I look forward to proudly lifting my voice along with thousands of people from all walks of life as we gather together in Washington D.C. and send this message loud and clear: I believe every life deserves a voice,” West said.

“Every child deserves a chance,” he added.
