“March for Life” participants Ro V. After six months against Wade, the work is said to be “incomplete.”
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Moving forward was the theme of Friday’s 50th annual March for Life in Washington. Thousands flocked to the nation’s capital for the first time since the historic Dobbs vs. Jackson decision that upset Roe v. Wade in June.
Every year since 1974, pro-lifers have brought their signs and slogans to show their support for the unborn, pray and hope that Roe v. Wade will be overturned. The first march was held on January 22, 1973, on the one-year anniversary of the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision.
Those prayers were answered last year, and now March for Life organizers say their fight has only just begun. Jeanne Mancini, president of March for Life, told Fox News Digital that this year’s event will be a time to reflect, celebrate and envision the future.

“Besides our national march, our biggest goal is the state march initiative,” Mancini said. “In 2022, we were in five states. This year, in 2023, we will double it: we will be in ten states. And we plan to be in all 50 states in the next 5-7 years.“
Fox News Digital spoke with March for Life participants who said their work in the pro-life movement is “not done.”
“This is really the beginning of a new movement because now the marches are to remove the word abortion from the next and future generations,” one woman shared.
One person told Fox News Digital: “People think Roe v. Wade is the end of the fight.” “But this is just the beginning.”
“People think that because Roe vs. Wade was stopped, that’s how the fight ended. But this is only the beginning.”
When asked what work should be done, the Anglican priest replied that “it should be easier for women to make the right decisions.” And there is only one solution.”
