Thousands upon thousands gathered in Washington, D.C., on January 20, 2023 for the annual March for Life, marking 50 years since the infamous Roe vs. Wade decision which legalized abortion in America. This year is very special as we celebrate the Supreme Court’s overturning of the Roe v. Wade nightmare.
Now, more than ever, we must press the attack, not pursuing compromise or complacency. The way to additional victories calls for a new phase in the pro-life struggle that completely rejects all the devastating effects of the sexual revolution.
Victory Lap into the Next Crusade
Motivated by the overturning of Roe v. Wade, the overwhelmingly youthful throng marched with an ever-increasing enthusiasm for the pro-life cause. The atmosphere was filled with a sense of celebration and resolve.
Members of the American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property (TFP) along with its Holy Choirs of Angels Marching Band playing bagpipes, brass, fifes, and drums, joined the marchers. The music was upbeat and firm, encouraging those marching to strengthen their resolve to defeat abortion.
TFP members also carried a banner that read: “Purity Is the Answer! The American TFP Calls on Post-Roe America to Vehemently Reject the Sexual Revolution.”
A veritable sea of banners and signs from groups around the nation blanketed the National Mall at the opening rally. An immense crowd then filled the streets parading toward the Capitol. Everywhere young people and families were proof that the movement has a future. Pro-abortion counter-protesters were nowhere to be found.
Moving Forward to the Next Phase in the Pro-Life Crusade
TFP volunteers distributed copies of their pro-life statement, “Moving Forward to the Next Phase in the Pro-Life Crusade,” to the multitudes passing by. While acknowledging the overturn of Roe v. Wade, the statement listed those values and principles that must now be defended and promoted to defeat the root cause of abortion—the sexual revolution.
The flyer states: “Thus, a post-Roe America must reject the entire sexual revolution. From contraception and no-fault divorce to the present LGBTQ+ agenda in all its moral horror…a post-Roe America must not rest until every last moral destruction wrought by the sexual revolution has been reversed.”
“As we march this year, let us thank God for the victorious overturning of Roe v. Wade. Let it catapult us to the next phase of the pro-life crusade.”
All Pure and Moral
“Some like to say that the overturning of Roe v. Wade erases the need for the March, said TFP Student Action leader John Ritchie. “They are completely wrong. We will only stop marching when procured abortion is eliminated in America!”
With this march, America thanks God for the overturn of Roe v. Wade and beseeches Him for the graces to continue the struggle until we become a pure and moral society that rejects every moral horror.
With God’s help, it can be done. With the help of God and His Blessed Mother, all is possible.
