A Nation Looks Ahead to the Fight for Life

January 20

This year, Family Policy Alliance staff joined thousands of friends at the annual National March for Life in our nation’s capital. This special gathering has been taking place for 50 years and is an exciting day of rallying support for unborn babies and their mothers.

2022 unraveled the fateful decision of Roe v. Wade and provided a real opportunity for state and federal legislators to advance safer laws that protect both moms and the unborn child.

And, now, we are ready for 2023.

The theme for the March this year was: Next Steps: Marching in a Post-Roe America. Many of you are asking since Roe was overturned: what are the next steps After Roe?

Thankfully, FPA and many of our state-level partners have been preparing a long time for this moment. We know that it will take the collective effort of many groups and individuals, much like yourself, to really make a change in the hearts and minds of Americans and in the laws that govern our everyday life.

As you read this, DOZENS of lawmakers across the country have partnered with FPA and the network of state family policy councils to introduce HUNDREDS of both federal and state-level pro-life bills in their legislature. We are proud to support these measures and will continue to advance other solutions to support moms and to end elective abortions.

In the end, YOU are what makes a difference in this movement to end abortion. Every call or email you make to a legislator, every hour you volunteer at a pregnancy center, every person you share the message of life with—these are things that can make a change.

YOU saw Roe overturned in your lifetime. Now we wholeheartedly believe you can be a part of making abortion unthinkable in America.

So, even if you missed the national March for Life in person, continue to fight for the unborn!

We wanted to make sure you were equipped to do just that by sharing Conversations with Craig, the newest podcast produced by Family Policy Alliance! This is your go-to podcast for all things family policy and how to talk to your friends and family about these issues. In our newest podcast episode, our CEO, Craig DeRoche, and Jeanne Mancini, the President of the March for Life Education and Defense Fund, talk about what makes this year’s march so unique – now that Roe is overturned. Check it out on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, or Google Podcasts.

We hope you enjoy the podcast and the pictures (above) our team took while out at the March for Life on Friday in Washington. We were extremely encouraged by the strong showing of Americans, especially young people, energized to see life cherished and families restored, and we hope to see YOU at the March next year.

In case you missed it, I also wanted to remind you that THIS Sunday is Sanctity of Life Sunday. You can view FPA’s full email about this Sunday here. The bottom line is FPA is encouraging all churches to pray that life would be cherished. We’ve listed some graphics and prayer points below this message for you to share with your church (you can click on each one to download a Hi-Res version as well). Please take a moment to share these with your pastor for this upcoming Sunday.

For life,
