We are excited to announce the 2020 March for Life theme -- "Life Empowers: pro-life is pro-woman."
2020 marks the centennial of the 19th Amendment, giving women the right to vote. As we celebrate this great moment in history, we remember and honor the suffragists, the original feminist leaders who recognized the inherent dignity of the unborn and that abortion not only ended a life but harmed women. The pro-life movement continues their legacy, recognizing that equal rights begin in the womb.
That, in essence, is why we march. We march to end abortion, with the vision of a world where the beauty, dignity, uniqueness, and rights of every human life are valued and protected.
March with us on January 24, 2020: https://marchforlife.org/mfl-2020/
I love being a woman.
Because when I say I love being a woman
I mean I love all of me
I mean I love all that means
My mind, my lips
My soul, my hips
My body, my fertility
I love our inner, outer beauty
And all that makes me she
We women are strong, intuitive, compassionate and valuable.
Smart, caring, nurturing, capable and powerful.
We are lawyers, mothers, poets, politicians, and teachers
Daughters, doctors, wives, artists, sisters - we are leaders.
Let us always keep in our remembrance
The bravery of our founding feminists.
They birthed the Nineteenth Amendment
Friends, these were our real-life heroines.
Thank Alice Paul, cuz it was she
Who fought with Susan B. Anthony
In 1920 they got the vote
But it was just the beginning.
They called abortion, and I quote
“The ultimate exploitation of women.”
They not only recognized the rights
Of our very smallest children
They knew that abortion at its core
Also harmed us as women
Now come 2020 the number of killed females unborn
Has reached thirty million.
And so it should be no surprise
That abortion targets the marginalized
So I’m lucky I survived
Let’s go back in history again -
And find another heroine.
Jane Roe of Roe v. Wade
The Supreme court case that made
Abortion legal in all states
Jane Roe was a cover name.
Roe’s real name was Norma McCorvey.
She said she firmly believes
The entire abortion industry
Is based on a lie.
She spent the rest of her life
Undoing the law that bears her name.
This was Jane Roe of Roe v. Wade.
The woman who fought for abortion in the first place.
But by the time she realized the lie, they’d closed the case.
We will not have true equality until we recognize
That abortion as a solution is the greatest lie.
When we as women suffer costs of childcare or poverty
It should never be considered even the slightest thought that we’d
Terminate a life to solve the problems of society
Instead of hurting mothers most vulnerable, why would we
Not stand up with them and affirm their right to be
Assisted with injustice when in a crisis pregnancy
Because the power we have now and the rights that were afforded us
Are because of the great women who rose up before us
They took single cries and turned them into a chorus
Saying we will not be silenced and you cannot ignore us
Ladies let’s fight like them and be a voice for the voiceless
Special thanks to our producers at Spirit Juice Studios, and spoken word artist, Rebecca Ocean.
