March for Life annulla il raduno annuale di persona a Washington, diventa virtuale

L'annuale March for Lifetraditionally held in the nation’s capitalwill take place virtually this year due to concerns surrounding the coronavirus pandemia and heightened pressure on forze dell'ordine.

The protection of all of those who participate in the annual March, as well as the many law enforcement personnel and others who work tirelessly each year to ensure a safe and peaceful event, is a top priority of the March for Life,” disse March for Life President Jeanne Mancini in a statement Friday.

In light of the fact that we are in the midst of a pandemic which may be peaking, and in view of the heightened pressures that law enforcement officers and others are currently facing in and around the Capitol, this year’s March for Life will look different.

Friday’s decision came in the aftermath of riots at the U.S. Capitol last week which resulted in multiple deaths, arresti, and fresh articles of impeachment for the president.


The March is occurring on Jan. 29, roughly a week after President-elect Biden’s inauguration.

The largest annual gathering for U.S. anti-abortion activists, the March for Life has been estimated to draw upwards of 100,000 people who walk in protest from the National Mall to the Supreme Court every January. It’s usually held on or around the anniversary of the landmark decision in Roe v. Guadare.

Quest'anno, tuttavia, Mancini is asking participants to stay home for a virtual gathering on Jan. 29.

The annual rally will take place virtually, and we are asking all participants to stay home and to join the March virtually,” lei disse.

We will invite a small group of pro-life leaders from across the country to march in Washington, D.C. quest'anno. These leaders will represent pro-life Americans everywhere who, each in their own unique ways, work to make abortion unthinkable and build a culture where every human life is valued and protected.

The March typically features a variety of anti-abortion speakers. L'anno scorso, President Trump became the first U.S. president to speak at the March. Nel 2019, the March caught attention for a high-profile confrontation that occurred between Covington Catholic High School students and a Native American activist.

Nel mese di settembre, the March hosted a virtual theme announcement. This year’s theme isTogether Strong: Life Unites
