March for Life to Go On Even Amidst Historic Storm

The March for Life, the largest pro-life gathering in the USA, will go on as scheduled despite the massive snowstorm gearing up to hit DC on Friday, the day of the March. The March is scheduled each year around January 22nd, the anniversary of the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion, and has seen some less-than-favorable weather in years past. This year is no different, and like in other years where the March has been hit by snow, the event will still happen.

A message on the March for Life website clearly states "Despite the winter storm prediction, the March for Life will not be cancelled," and March for Life President Jeanne Mancini tweeted that the event will go on as scheduled.

A pre-March rally is scheduled to begin at 11:45 a.m. on Friday, and the March itself begins at 1:00 p.m. to conclude around 3:00 p.m. outside of the Supreme Court. Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina, in addition to several other state representatives and notable pro-life figures, is scheduled to address the crowd.

The theme of this year's March for Life is Pro-Life and Pro-Woman Go Hand in Hand.
