.- Americans United for Life president Dr. Charmaine Yoest has announced the first ever Virtual March for Life taking place on Jan. 22. The goal of the virtual effort is to give a voice to those who are unable to travel to Washington D.C. for the upcoming event.

“With a health care bill that includes taxpayer funding for abortion hanging in the balance, this is an important, historic opportunity to get the attention of politicians in Washington,” said Yoest in a statement Friday.

“In this critical moment, every American must be heard regardless of where you are. Hundreds of thousands of Americans are coming to Washington, D.C. to join the most important March for Life in history, and you can be there through the Virtual March for Life!” she added.

Participating in the march “will only take seconds” explained the AUL president, noting that all one needs to do is go to www.VirtualMarchforLife.com, choose an avatar and be placed next to other Americans marching online in front of the U.S. Capitol Building.

“So much is at stake in this moment,” Yoest continued. “How many more lives will be lost if the Congressional majority rolls back existing law that protects life and protects us from having our tax dollars used to fund abortion?”

As of Tuesday morning, there are over 21,000 participants signed up for the Virtual March for Life.
