On Jan. 22, 2014 hundreds of thousands of people are expected to descend on the nation’s capital to assemble for the 40th year in a row to stand up for the over 55 millions lives lost since the legalization of abortion in the U.S. Despite the blizzard pounding the East Coast, the 40th annual March for Life will take place.
However, if you can’t attend the March in person, you can still participate in many ways.
Pray. “The Lord is close to the brokenhearted, saves those whose spirit is crushed.” (Psalm 34:19) One third of our generation has been lost to abortion. Cry out to the Lord for an end to the taking of innocent lives, for the mothers who have been lied to that abortion is “safe solution” to an unplanned pregnancy, for mothers and fathers to have the strength to choose life for their child, especially in difficult circumstances. Attend a Holy Hour, pray the Rosary or go to Mass with the special intention of putting an end to abortion.
Support. Volunteer your time at a local crisis pregnancy center. Babysit your nieces and nephews. Prepare a meal for a new mom. Discern adoption. Donate your weekly coffee budget to pro-life organizations.
March online. Last year, the March for Life was a trending topic on Twitter, but this year organizers are encouraging even more online interaction with their #whywemarch campaign. Tell your friends and followers why you March for Life.
Share. Post 41 Years of Roe v. Wade, a powerful short from Texas Alliance for Life which gives the history of abortion in the United States, with friends on Facebook, followers on Twitter, or whatever social media outlet you prefer. Go see The 40 Film, a documentary investigating the impact of legalized abortion in the U.S.
