Colorado Springs, Colo. — Dr. James Dobson issues the following statement urging pro-life Americans to participate in Friday’sMarch for Life:
“I want to encourage every American who cares for the lives of the unborn to join the March for Life tomorrow in Washington D.C. and in cities in every state across our nation. Perhaps at no other time since the disastrous 1973 Roe v Wade ruling has it been more important for pro-life Americans to rally together and send a resounding statement of what the majority of America believes: that life is a sacred gift from God, and no man or woman should have the right to end it. Pro-choice demonstrations might have made headlines last week, but the voices of those who believe in the sanctity of life will tell the real story of what our country stands for.
“Since the inauguration of our new administration, I have felt a renewed hope for the cause of the unborn in America. We now have a president who has not only stated, but also proven with his actions, his sincere desire to protect and fight for those that truly have no voice. I’m also thankful for Vice President Mike Pence, whose outspoken commitment to life has been a hallmark of his entire career. I truly believe this is the dawn of a new day for America, and that not too long from now we won’t be marching against the atrocity of abortion, but as a celebration of life. But for now, let us keep fighting for every single baby in America. Let us March for Life.”
