The National March for Life, the largest pro-life rally in the United States, has officially been changed to a virtual event. Every year since the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court case of 1973, pro-life advocates have gathered in-person for a peaceful demonstration against abortion. The 2021 virtual march is scheduled for January 29.
The March for Life Education and Defense Committee issued a statement explaining the specifics of this year’s event. The statement says,
In light of the fact that we are in the midst of a pandemic which may be peaking, and in view of the heightened pressures that law enforcement officers and others are currently facing in and around the Capitol, this year’s March for Life will look different.
While most participants will attend virtually, there are a small number of prominent pro-life leaders who will attend the event in-person as representatives of the greater pro-life movement. ESPN college football analyst and former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow will deliver a virtual keynote address immediately following the march.
