Pro-Life Group Promotes March for Life Event to Oppose Obama on Abortion

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) — Americans across the country are asking what they can do to stop the pro-abortion agenda of incoming president Barack Obama and one pro-life group has the answer: attend the March for Life. That’s the national walk in the nation’s capital that features hundreds of thousands of pro-life advocates.
Two days after Barack Obama’s inauguration, pro-lifers will have the chance to show the new president that the pro-life movement isn’t dead just because he won the presidential election.
As tens of thousands gather to oppose the deadly Supreme Court decision that allowed virtually unlimited abortions, Concerned Women for America will be handing out snacks to participants.
The snacks will come with information on how to oppose the Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA), the bill Obama backs that would make unlimited abortions the national law and overturn hundreds of pro-life laws in every state.
The next day, pro-lifers in Washington and around the country will be joining CWA’s FOCA Lobby Day by contacting their members of Congress and urging them to oppose this radical pro-abortion bill.
"Barack Obama promised that his first act as president would be to sign the Freedom of Choice Act, a radical bill that would nullify every pro-life law from parental notification laws to bans on federal funding of abortion," CWA president Wendy Wright told LifeNews.com. "These common-sense regulations passed over the last 36 years enjoy a majority of support among Americans and save lives by reducing the number of abortions."
"Through CWA’s organized efforts, congressmen will hear from their constituents that they should oppose FOCA or any attempt to undo any pro-life laws," Wright added.
CWA will host an Open House on the morning of the March for Life.
Then, on Friday, January 23, participants will meet at CWA’s office to be briefed on FOCA and pair up with other pro-lifers. They will then travel to Capitol Hill to lobby congressmen and their staff.
Those who cannot come to Washington are invited to call or visit their congressmen’s district offices in their home states.
