Enthusiasm, renewed hope at 2017 March for Life in D.C.

January 27, 2017 - Hundreds of thousands of pro-life marchers packed Constitution Avenue during the 2017 March for Life in Washington, D.C., with new hope supplied by Vice President Mike Pence, the first sitting vice president to personally address the crowd since the March began in 1974. "Life is winning in America, and today is a celebration in that progress," Pence told the crowd.

 

"Let this movement be known for love," he added. "Not anger. For compassion. Not confrontation." Other speakers included presidential advisor Kellyanne Conway, New York Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Iowa Senator Joni Ernst and many others.

 

As has been the case since the very first March for Life in 1974, Virginia Knights were the backbone of the event, providing hundreds of marshals to guide the march safely through the streets of the nation's capital.

 

For those unable to make it to Washington, D.C. other pro-life marches were held this year in 56 other cities around the nation.
