The March for Life in Washington D.C. was a rousing success with at least 100,000 people marching in the U.S. capital. The focus this year was moved from the Supreme Court of the United States to Congress, befitting the new reality of abortion that occurred after the Court’s decision last June overturning Roe v. Wade in its Dobbs decision. That ruling said that legislatures – Congress and the states’ – can regulate or ban abortion. The throng assembled in Washington urged representatives and senators pass a pro-life law. Organizers are hopeful that in the next few years, every state capital will have its own march for life to demand legal protections for the preborn in lieu of a national law outlawing abortion.
As we report on page eight, the Dobbs decision is saving lives, but in the absence of a national law too many preborn children still fall victim to abortion. It is time to enact a total ban on abortion in the U.S. – and in Canada. The National March for Life in Ottawa is May 11. See you there.
