Mark Your Calendars in March
Two pro-life events are less than a month away.
#1: On Tuesday, March 4, join pro-life advocates from around the country at the Protect Women, Protect Life rally outside the Supreme Court building in Washington, D.C.! That day, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in June Medical Services v. Gee, the case challenging Louisiana's requirement that abortionists have admitting privileges at a local hospital. Admitting privileges are a valuable way to screen out shoddy/quack abortionists (and yes, that absolutely is a documented problem in Louisiana, so don't let anyone tell you otherwise). This is the Court's chance to reverse its horrific decision in Whole Woman's Health v. Hellerstedt four years ago, which dangerously exempted Texas abortion facilities from a similar regulation.
Pro-life advocates will gather that morning to show our support for the Louisiana law. We are thrilled to announce that Secular Pro-Life's very own Terrisa Bukovinac will speak at the rally! Please arrive as early as you possibly can, because abortion lobby groups will undoubtedly try to crowd us out. Media will be there as well, so bring your best secular signs!
#2: Secular Pro-Life is proud to co-sponsor the pro-life "March on the Arch" in St. Louis, MO on Saturday, March 7! The march will begin at the Planned Parenthood on Forest Park Avenue — which is the only abortion business in the state — and end at the Gateway Arch in downtown St. Louis. There will be food trucks, music, and exhibit booths, and the first 1000 people will get a goodie bag. Come out to support the Coalition for Life St. Louis in its effort to make Missouri the first abortion-free state!
