Boston, Mass., Jun 21, 2023 / 12:45 pm
On Saturday, June 24, on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C., several pro-life organizations will be leading a “National Celebrate Life Day” rally to commemorate the one-year anniversary of the overturning of Roe v. Wade.
Roe v. Wade was the 1973 landmark court decision that legalized abortion nationwide but was overturned on June 24, 2022, by the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization decision.
A June report by the pro-abortion organization Society of Family Planning said that more than 25,000 expected abortions didn’t come to fruition from July 2022 through March 2023 because of the new legal protections for the unborn.
The rally is set to take place from 10:30 a.m. to noon. There will be a ticketed gala at 7 p.m. at the nearby Renaissance Hotel, about a 15-minute drive from the Lincoln Memorial.
