Thousands Flood to Washington, DC to 'Banner Year' March For Life

Billy Hallowell : Jan 21, 2022  CBN News-Faithwire

"I haven't seen the enthusiasm of the movement as it is now ever in my lifetime. Especially with the Supreme Court case Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health, I think that pro-life America is excited and they see a very important and real victory within reach. No one knows the future, but the excitement is palpable. So I think the March for Life this year is a banner year." -March for Life President Jeanne Mancini

Faithwire senior writers Billy Hallowell and Tré Goins-Phillips are at the rally and will be hosting live coverage for CBN News, which you can watch HERE, beginning at 12:00 p.m.

What's the schedule?

The March for Life Rally begins at 12:00 p.m. and will feature the following speakers:

Actor Kirk Cameron

Rep. Julia Letlow (R-La.)

Relationship Matters founder Toni McFadden

"Duck Dynasty" star Lisa Robertson

"Bible in a Year" podcast host Father Mike Schmitz

Down syndrome advocate Katie Shaw

Rep. Chris Smith (R-N.J.)

Christendom College student George Schuberg

Alliance Defending Freedom Attorney Kristen Waggoner

Registered nurse Rachel Young

Immediately after the one-hour rally, the march to the US Supreme Court building will begin. CBN's Faithwire team will bring live coverage of the march, from start to finish, with interviews featured throughout the event.

What else?

March for Life President Jeanne Mancini told Faithwire she is expecting some 100,000 demonstrators to show up for the March for Life, describing 2022 as "a banner year" for the pro-life cause.

"I haven’t seen the enthusiasm of the movement as it is now ever in my lifetime," she said. "Especially with the Supreme Court case Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health, I think that pro-life America is excited and they see a very important and real victory within reach. No one knows the future, but the excitement is palpable. So I think the March for Life this year is a banner year."

The theme for this year's March for Life is "Equality Begins in the Womb."

Mancini said the leadership team chose the theme "because equity and equality is something that’s getting a lot of conversation and it is important, but we wanted to insert into that conversation the unborn child."

With that in mind, Mancini said she is particularly eager to hear from Katie Shaw, an Indiana woman who has Down syndrome and whose parents chose life over abortion.

"There’s a whole population of unborn children that are disproportionately targeted for abortion, and those are ones who receive a Down syndrome positive test," Mancini said. "Katie received such a test ... but her life has no less dignity or beauty than mine or yours and so we’re very excited to hear Katie share her testimony."
