The 51st March for Life in Washington D.C. is anticipated to draw between 50,000 and 100,000 participants despite snowy and freezing conditions.

Key speakers include House Speaker Mike Johnson, Rep. Chris Smith, former NFL player Benjamin Watson, and Jim Daly of Focus on the Family.

Jeanne Mancini, president of March for Life Education and Defense Fund, said, “We are overjoyed to welcome these inspiring pro-life leaders at this year’s 51st March for Life.”

“For the past 51 years, the March for Life has powerfully witnessed to the tragedy of abortion, while calling for stronger protections for women and the unborn. This year’s speakers will address the 2024 theme– Pro-life: With Every Woman, For Every Child, which is at the heart of the pro-life movement, in their remarks. We will also celebrate the heroic work of Pregnancy Care Centers and Maternity Homes, while offering a roadmap to how we will truly achieve a life-affirming culture that respects the inherent dignity of all human life,” she continued.

The event focuses on the theme “Pro-life: With Every Woman, For Every Child,” and aims to celebrate the work of Pregnancy Care Centers and Maternity Homes.

Kristan Hawkins, the president of Students for Life, said, “A lot of people have been saying, ‘We need to stay local, because the decision has been returned to the states.’”

March for Life claims “The goal of the national March for Life is to not only change laws at the state and federal level, but to change the culture to ultimately make abortion unthinkable.”

This year’s march occurs in the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which overturned Roe v. Wade, and is seen as an opportunity to influence the 2024 elections and shift the cultural perception of abortion.
