The March for Life on Monday saw half a million people take to the streets of the nation’s capital to share their pro-life convictions and join together for the common cause of stopping abortion. A new virtual pro-abortion march can’t keep up.
While more than 500,000 Americans physically went to Washington, D.C. to take part in the March for Life — giving of their time, money and effort to do so, the nation’s biggest pro-abortion groups are having a difficult time getting 20 percent of that number to barely lift a finger by signing up for a march on the Internet.
Sponsoring by Planned Parenthood, NARAL, MoveOn, Ms. Magazine, NOW, and a ost of smaller pro-abortion groups, the Trust Women Week march has only signed up 87,784 people to participate.
“People around the country are joining together to show our strength and advocate for women’s health and reproductive justice. Join the march now and add your name to our message for Congress and other elected officials,” the pro-abortion mach says.
Jill Stanek, a pro-life blogger, noticed the failure of the virtual pro-abortion march: “Meanwhile 50+ pro-abortion organizations can’t break 100,000 for a VIRTUAL march. Ha.”
Sarah Crawford of Texas Right to Life also noticed the disparity and the victory for pro-lifers.
“The organizers for this event could not have chosen a more ironic name. Abortion exploits women. The abortion industry has proven time and time again that they do not trust women enough to give them all of their options when facing an unintended pregnancy,” she said. “Trusting women is not a problem for the Pro-Life movement or the congressmen and women who vote to protect the rights of women to defend the unborn. The Pro-Life movement works to truly empower women by giving them every option available to them when facing an unintended pregnancy, not just abortion. No, recent events prove that the inability to truly trust women lies with the abortion industry and its money-hungry cohorts.”
“Abortion proponents would rather the government continue to throw tax dollars at a business that promotes the slaughter of children than to empower women to be the strong individuals they claim the female sex to be. Like the president, these abortion-eager feminist groups assume that only non-pregnant women are worthy of social equality and that to succeed in life one must pay the ultimate price – their child’s Life,” she said. “Trusting women is more than showcasing abortion as their only option. Abortion never does anything but kill a living human being. Women are strong and history has proven that fact. The abortion lobby is taking notice and they feel threatened by the amount of Pro-Life legislation that was introduced and passed in 2011 so much so, that they are putting on this virtual march.”
“The time has come for the abortion-hungry minority to realize that women deserve the best possible options for themselves and their children, and abortion is not the answer,” Crawford concludes.
