We began marching in 1974 in response to the Supreme Court's decision in Roe v. Wade, promising we would March for Life until this wrongful decision was overturned. After 50 years, we have finally reached that goal — but the fight to end abortion in our country is not over.
Throughout human history, countless groups of humans have been unjustly deprived of the status of "personhood," by both society and the law. Civilization has looked back with regret every time.
Abortion is no different.
As we move into this next phase of defending life, we are armed with the knowledge that truth, science, and even popular opinion are all on our side. We are marching into a post-Roe America, and our work is just beginning.
For nearly 50 years, we have been marching to see this day. Today, and in large part thanks to your pro-life witness at the March for Life we can finally say the words that we have been working tirelessly towards: Roe v. Wade is no longer the law of the land!
Today, the ability to determine whether & when to limit abortion was returned to the American people who have every right to enact laws like Mississippi's which protect mothers & unborn babies after 15 weeks - when they have fully formed noses, can suck their thumb, & feel pain.
For nearly fifty years, the Supreme Court has imposed an unpopular and extreme abortion policy on our nation, but as the annual March for Life gives witness to, Roe's allowance of abortion-on-demand, up-until-birth has never represented where most Americans stand on life!
As the nation prepares for potential changes in abortion access, many pro-life states are championing efforts to help women facing unexpected or difficult pregnancies and those in low-income situations.
The pro-life movement has the goal of upholding and protecting the dignity of every human life. It is the responsibility of each and every one of us to affirm the humanity of the unborn, and to ensure equal protection for them under the law.
The majority of Americans believe in the protection of unborn children.
Yet under Roe v. Wade, our out-of-touch abortion laws permit ending the life of an unborn child through all 9 months of pregnancy. Roe does not reflect public opinion.
When Roe was decided, we didn't have the medical technology to watch preborn babies suck their thumbs, smile, and react to light, noise, or pain from within the womb. Almost 50 years later, we cannot continue to turn a blind eye to the truth.
Every abortion ends a human life.
Pregnancy Resource Centers served close to 2 million people every year. Providing free prenatal care, parenting classes, baby supplies, and even financial and housing support, these centers empower moms and dads through all stages of parenthood.
“The stakes have never been higher as we await a decision from the Supreme Court in the landmark Dobbs abortion case which could return abortion legislation back to the people through their elected representatives."

"Centuries of scientific evidence provide indisputable proof that the unborn child is a human being from the very moment of conception."

In anticipation of the upcoming Supreme Court decision on Dobbs and the potential overturning of Roe, Planned Parenthood has stopped scheduling abortion appointments in Wisconsin.
Today we remember that abortion does not only affect mothers. For every child lost to abortion, there is a mother and father suffering. This #FathersDay, we encourage all men affected by abortion to seek forgiveness and healing.
