The Federalist: The 2020 March for Life is upon us. Every year since 1974, following the fateful Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision, pro-lifers have gathered at our nation’s capital to march on behalf of the unborn. Last year, hundreds of thousands of marchers attended from all across the U.S.
So many people in one place can make navigating Washington, D.C. confusing, especially with heightened security now that President Donald Trump is confirmed to speak, the first president ever to attend the March for Life. Here’s everything you need to know about attending the march.
Time and Location
The March for Life rally will kick off at 12th Street on the National Mall with a concert performed by Christian band We Are Messengers at 11:00 a.m., followed by the rest of the pre-march rally beginning at noon. In addition to the president, who is scheduled to appear about noon, the rally features speakers such as Republican Rep. Steve Scalise from Louisiana, Democratic Louisiana state Sen. Katrina Jackson, abortion survivors Claire Culwell and Melissa Ohden, and author and pastor David Platt, among others. At the conclusion of the rally, about 1:00 p.m., the march will commence up Constitution Avenue to the Supreme Court. more here
