The 2022 March for Life will lean into a theme of equality for the unborn, the event’s organizers said Wednesday, as they announced the annual march’s theme: “Equality Begins in the Womb.”
“The pro-life movement recognizes the immense responsibility this nation bears to restore equal rights to its most defenseless citizens in the womb,” March for Life President Jeanne Mancini said during the Wednesday announcement at The Heritage Foundation. “Since [the 1973 Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision], scientific advances have undeniably confirmed the humanity of the unborn, and today most Americans agree there should be significant limits on abortion.”
To this end, we hope the Supreme Court honors the existing constitutional protections for the unborn as they hear arguments in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization,” Mancini said. “No child’s life, either here or abroad, should be threatened by the injustice of abortion.”
A number of pro-life activists joined the March for Life president in Washington, D.C., for the announcement: Judicial Crisis Network President Carrie Severino, Radiance Foundation co-founder Ryan Bomberger, Catholic Association policy adviser and radiologist Dr. Grazie Christine, and Heritage Foundation President Kay C. James.
Actor Kirk Cameron will speak at the January 2022 march, and Grammy Award-nominated songwriter Matthew West will perform, the March for Life announced. The Rev. Mike Schmitz, a Catholic priest who hosts the chart-topping “Bible in a Year” podcast, is the keynote speaker at the event’s Rose Dinner after the march.
The March for Life is a massive pro-life demonstration that has followed the anniversary of Roe v. Wade every year in the nation’s capital since 1974. Thousands of pro-life activists, students, and families flock to Washington, D.C., to demonstrate against abortion and attend the march’s rallies.
Organizers canceled the 2021 March for Life, scheduled to take place only a few weeks after the Jan. 6 Capitol riot. A small group of pro-life leaders opted instead to march for the unborn in Washington on an unpublicized route.
“The protection of all of those who participate in the annual march, as well as the many law enforcement personnel and others who work tirelessly each year to ensure a safe and peaceful event, is a top priority of the March for Life,” Mancini announced Jan. 15, in canceling the event.
“In light of the fact that we are in the midst of a pandemic, which may be peaking, and in view of the heightened pressures that law enforcement officers and others are currently facing in and around the Capitol, this year’s March for Life will look different,” she said.
In January 2020, then-President Donald Trump became the first president to attend the March for Life in person. Mancini hailed the former president and his administration as “consistent champions for life,” calling their support for the March for Life “unwavering.”
“It is my profound honor to be the first president in history to attend the March for Life!” Trump told the crowd that year. “We’re here for a very simple reason—to defend the right of every child, born and unborn, to fulfill their God-given potential.”
“Every life brings love into this world,” the then-president said. “Every person is worth protecting.”
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. 14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. 15 My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. 16 Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.
If she has made herself impure and been unfaithful to her husband, this will be the result: When she is made to drink the water that brings a curse and causes bitter suffering, it will enter her, her abdomen will swell and her womb will miscarry, and she will become a curse. 28 If, however, the woman has not made herself impure, but is clean, she will be cleared of guilt and will be able to have children.
Children are a heritage from the LORD, offspring a reward from him. 4 Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one’s youth. 5 Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their opponents in court.
Then the priest shall put the woman under oath and say to her, “If no other man has had sexual relations with you and you have not gone astray and become impure while married to your husband, may this bitter water that brings a curse not harm you. 20 But if you have gone astray while married to your husband and you have made yourself impure by having sexual relations with a man other than your husband”— 21 here the priest is to put the woman under this curse—“may the LORD cause you to become a curse among your people when he makes your womb miscarry and your abdomen swell. 22 May this water that brings a curse enter your body so that your abdomen swells or your womb miscarries.” “ ‘Then the woman is to say, “Amen. So be it.
There are six things the LORD hates, seven that are detestable to him: 17 haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, 18 a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, 19 a false witness who pours out lies and a person who stirs up conflict in the community.
