If there is any state in the nation where more pro-life activity is sorely needed, it’s Connecticut. The state is strongly pro-abortion and routinely elects abortion advocates to Congress and its state legislature as well as voting for pro-abortion candidates for president.

Toe help raise the pro-life standard, a pro-life march is planned for the Spring. The Rally will take place in front of the Capitol building (North side) located on the Capitol Grounds at 210 Capitol Avenue in Hartford and will begin at 12:00 p.m.

The March for Life, partnered with the Connecticut Catholic Conference, will host the first ever Connecticut State March for Life on March 23rd, 2022, in Hartford. Marchers will rally at the state capitol to call for life-affirming laws and for an end to the continued expansion of extreme abortion policies in Connecticut.

“We are delighted to partner with the Connecticut Catholic Conference, an organization so focused on advancing life-affirming public policy in the state. This is an opportunity for Connecticut pro-lifers to come together and remind elected officials that Connecticut stands for the rights of the unborn,” said Jeanne Mancini, President of March for Life Defense and Education Fund. “Every human life is precious and should be protected under the law.”

“It’s a first. It’s going to be a historic event for the pro-life movement in Connecticut. I think it will speak well of the pro-life movement in Connecticut, which is stronger than anyone knows, and will assist in countering the strong pro-abortion forces in our state,” said Christopher Healy, Executive Director of the Connecticut Catholic Conference (CCC), the statewide organization representing the Catholic Bishops of Connecticut.
