Post-Roe, Why We Still March for Life

Friday marks the 50th annual March for Life in Washington, D.C.

For 49 years, Americans from across the country have traveled to the nation’s capital and called for the Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe v. Wade decision to be overturned. 

Now that Roe v. Wade has been relegated to the ash heap of history, it’s understandable to ask, “Why are we still marching?” The short answer: Babies’ lives are still being ended in the womb every day. 

The joy of Roe v. Wade being overturned cannot be overstated. The Catholic News Agency reported in October that already 10,000 lives have been saved because of the high court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. The lives saved are both something to celebrate and a reminder that the pro-life movement’s work is far from over.
