March for Life Next Week

Next Wednesday, thousands of marchers will rally on the National Mall and the streets around the Capitol and the Supreme Court to urge respect for human life and the end of abortion in America.

On January 22, 1973, the Supreme Court issued its infamous Roe v. Wade decision that asserted a right to privacy in the Constitution that extended to abortion.  Every year thereafter, masses of pro-life marchers have come to Washington to protest that ruling and to promote a culture that properly values prenatal life. This year, the March for Life will particularly focus its message on the importance of adoption.

If you are in Washington next Wednesday, please join Dr. Jerry A. Johnson, President & CEO of NRB, in warming up after the March for Life with coffee and light refreshments at NRB’s Capitol Hill office! Our open house reception will be from 2-4pm that day at 603 2nd St. NE in Washington, DC. RSVP information is here.

  • Learn more about the March for Life at www.marchforlife.org and on social media at #WhyWeMarch.
  • Find the invitation to NRB’s open house reception that day.
