A march for generations to come
The March for Life was an opportunity for people of all ages, races and genders to come together to march for something they believe in. March for Life is the world’s largest anti-abortion event, and Friday was its 46th anniversary.
Courtney Heath, a student at Liberty University, shared her perspective about the march with a sense of joy.
“It was one of the best experiences of my life by far,” Heath said. “The event was so calm, and seeing so many people come together to stand up for what they believe in was an amazing experience.”
The march has been around since 1973 in Washington D.C. Now, a new generation is taking up the cause.
“Seeing mostly college students come out and march for such a big topic was very inspirational,” Heath said. “Since we are the next generation making big decisions, coming out and voicing our opinions is so important.”
Anna Martin, another student from Liberty University, was excited about seeing her peers there.
“What an honor it is to gather together from different backgrounds, religions, and political ideologies to rally against one injustice especially in today's political climate,” Martin said.
Not only were there a number of marchers, but there influential speakers also came out in support of the pro-life movement. Just some of these speakers from around the nation include Editor-in-Chief of The Daily Wire Ben Shapiro, Dr. Alveda King and Vice President Mike Pence.
“The march has a sense of unity, having so many people from different backgrounds and all over the world was a sight to see,” Heath said. “Since having so much separation in our country it really was good for people to come together.”
