The Women’s March on Washington, sponsored by the pro-abortion National Organization of Women, will be held on January 21, 2017 to bring together abortion activists from around the country. This march intends to affirm abortion and women’s rights as “human rights,” a National Organization of Women’s press release announced this week.
The march comes in response to President-elect Donald Trump’s stunning victory over pro-abortion candidate Hillary Clinton, who anticipated victory, the liberal news site Vox reports. The pro-abortion march was a social media brainchild, with 100,000-plus people reportedly planning to attend, based on Facebook.
“There is no better place for us to deliver this message than Washington, D.C. on the first day of the new administration,” NOW said in a statement. “NOW stands in unwavering solidarity with our sisters whose communities have been insulted, demonized and threatened in recent months, including … those who seek–and the caring professionals who provide–safe, affordable abortion care and birth control.”
According to Vox, the protest is not for or against any particular candidate, but about establishing “women’s rights as human rights.” But by rights, they mean abortion, and their pro-abortion position is a clear contrast to Trump and his administration, who have promised to support new protections for unborn babies and a defunding bill to stop taxpayer dollars from going to the nation’s largest abortion chain, Planned Parenthood.
The march will start at Lincoln Memorial and end at the White House, Bob Bland, the organizer of the event told the Daily Mail.
The idea originated in the hours after the election, and is open to men and women, according to the Daily Mail. There is also a similar pro-abortion “women’s rights” march in Chicago planned for January 21, according to reports.

How ironic that abortion can be considered a “human right” when it denies humanity to the least and most innocent of its own citizens who do not have the opportunity to march for their lives or anyone else’s lives. How can something be a human right that denies humanity to more than 664,435 unborn children, per 2013 Centers for Disease Control statistics?
For a country that claims to deserve a place on a pedestal on the United Nations Human Rights committee do while criticizing Russian human rights policies or China’s barbaric One Child Policy, it seems very hypocritical to be marching for such a cause.
