The 2016 March for Life

Jeanne Mancini, President of March for Life, joins us from Washington to share what made the 2016 event so special and how other cities hold similar rallies.

The March for Life was founded in 1973, when a group of pro-life leaders gathered at Nellie Gray’s home in Washington, D.C. to express concern that the first Anniversary of Roe v. Wade would come and go with no recognition. 

On January 22, 1974 the first March for Life was held on the steps of the Capitol. Pro-lifers have been Marching for Life every year since!
