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,

Family Policy Alliance CEO Craig DeRoche hands out After Roe signs to the crowd at the March for Life.

It was already 10 AM, and the sun was out, but boy, was it cold. Taking your hands out of your gloves for just a few moments was enough to send a chill through your body.

But for as cold as it was outside, the spirit of the place was warm. Students, grandparents, professionals, and young children stood shoulder-to-shoulder. People who might not see eye to eye on every issue walked together, prayed together, sang together.

And these tens of thousands shivered together, raising their signs and their voices for one cause: life.

The 49th Annual March for Life was a powerful gathering, and our team was honored to be there advocating for the unborn and their families.

Our team shared branded After Roe gear, including signs and hats, throughout the crowd. The message? Roe v. Wade’s time is running short. And After Roe? There is life – but it will be up to every one of us to make sure that life is protected in every state. You can learn more about what life After Roe will look like in your state here.

Hear from pro-life Congressional leaders!

Behind the Scenes: Nicole Hudgens interviews Rep. Mike Johnson (LA-4) on the steps of the U.S. Capitol.

The day before the March, our team was honored to interview pro-life Congressional leaders on the steps of the U.S. Capitol.

“There’s no other human rights abuse in the world that parades around as if it’s a human right,” said Rep. Chris Smith (NJ-4), co-chair of the Congressional Pro-Life Caucus. Rep. Mike Johnson (LA-4)) shared about why every person has value, and Rep. Debbie Lesko (AZ-8) spoke the truth: “millions of Americans have been lied to.” Rep. Rob Wittman (VA-1) shared a compelling story about why this issue is personal to him. Plus, Rep. Kevin Hern (OK-1) shared about key Congressional pro-life efforts

You can watch all the interviews here. Be sure to share with friends!

A World After Roe

The most touching sight of the March for Life? As we approached the Capitol, we noticed a little girl atop her parent’s shoulders, carrying her After Roe sign high. And it hit us: after Roe, there will be many, many more little girls like her. They will be alive because of people like you, who tirelessly advocate for the unborn, who speak out to your elected leaders, who share about why you are pro-life with friends and family. Because of you, these little children will be a testament: after Roe, there is life.

Will you help make that a reality?

Standing with you for life,

Meridian Baldacci

In just thirteen days, pro-lifers from around the country will gather in Washington, D.C. for the annual March for Life.

Each year since the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision, this event has drawn attendees from all walks of life. In fact, it’s the world’s largest peaceful human rights protest.

But this year, there is a special weight and significance. Why? Because Roe’s time may soon be up.

In December, the U.S. Supreme Court heard a case challenging Roe v. Wade, putting a world After Roe clearly on the horizon.

The day before that hearing, we sat down with Jeanne Mancini, President of the March for Life, to learn more about the annual March and why it’s especially significant this year.

You can watch that video here:

This year, our team will be at the March for Life, marching together for a day when not only is Roe overturned, but life is truly cherished across our nation. Will you join us?

You can learn more about the March for Life here.

Plan to join us at the March? Family Policy Alliance will have After Roe signs available for you to march with! Sign up here to get in touch with us on the day of the march. We would love to meet you and give you a free sign for the march!  Also – stay tuned for an exciting announcement coming next week about branded After Roe merchandise!

Can’t make it to D.C.? You can still support the cause from your own state! Some states have their own marches throughout the year. In the meantime, watch for information about new pro-life merchandise you can sport around town and share with friends and family. Details to be revealed next week!

Whether you’re joining us in D.C. or supporting from afar, we hope that you will join us in prayer for an era After Roe – and ultimately, for the end of abortion and the embrace of life throughout our country.

Standing with you for life,

Meridian Baldacci
