The March for Life Education and Defense Fund unveiled its theme for the Jan. 19, 2024, March for Life, which emphasizes the need to care for both the mother and the child: “With Every Woman, For Every Child.”
Jeanne Mancini, the president of the March for Life, announced the new theme on Tuesday afternoon at the Heritage Foundation. She was joined by a three-person panel of pro-life guests to discuss ways in which the movement can care for pregnant women, mothers, and children together.
“We aren’t saying that it’s easy, but we are saying that it is right to choose life and we hold that choosing life is empowering and that love saves lives,” Mancini said in the announcement.
Mancini said there is a “false narrative around abortion” that suggests abortion is “empowering and necessary.” She said this “fear-based messaging tries to convince women who are facing unexpected pregnancies that they’re alone, that they’re incapable, that they are ill-equipped to handle motherhood.”
