Our January Plans

Pro-life marchers with banners

January is always a busy time for Secular Pro-Life, and the pro-life movement as a whole, as we mark the anniversary of Roe v. Wade and develop strategies to save lives in the new year. COVID-19 will make things a bit different in 2021 (read: social distancing and no indoor events), but we are committed to safely making a stand for children in the womb. Our schedule is below; we hope you can join us!

January 2-23: Midwest "Moving the Movement" Tour and Diaper Drive

As we've previously written, the March for Life Chicago is adapting to COVID-19 with a series of smaller parking lot rallies throughout the Midwest. (They're partnering with local radio stations so people can listen to pro-life speakers from their cars; how cool is that?) Secular Pro-Life is pleased to co-sponsor the tour, which has stops in Madison, WI (January 2); Des Moines, IA (January 9); Omaha, NE (January 10); Fort Wayne, IN (January 16); Mundelein, IL (January 17); Indianapolis, IN (January 22); and of course, Chicago, IL (January 23). At the Chicago stop, check your goodie bag for a treat from Secular Pro-Life! 

The tour organizers are also collecting diapers for families in need at each location, with a goal of 130,094—one for every baby annually aborted in the Midwest. Whether or not you live in the Midwest or are able to participate in the tour, we encourage you to contribute online

Friday, January 29: The March for Life in Washington, D.C.

You can find Secular Pro-Life with our friends from Rehumanize International and other organizations at 10:30 a.m. at the corner of Constitution Avenue. Details here. Look for our 14-foot-tall, bright blue banner; you can't miss it! While supplies last, we will be distributing FREE masks featuring our classic slogan "Call me an extremist, but I think dismemberment is wrong."

Saturday, January 30 (day): Virtual Pro-Life Student Conference

The Cardinal O'Connor Conference on Life, traditionally held at Georgetown University, is going remote this year. Secular Pro-Life appreciates this opportunity to connect with Catholic university students and help them reach their secular classmates with the pro-life message. Stop by our virtual exhibit booth and say hello! Registration is required

Saturday, January 30 (evening): Virtual Game Night Fundraiser

Sadly, our traditional karaoke fundraiser is not possible during the pandemic. Instead, we are partnering with Rehumanize International for a virtual game night! Details to follow.

P.S.—Although the lack of in-person conferences has reduced our expenses somewhat, this is still the most costly time of year for us. Please donate to Secular Pro-Life if you are able. We greatly appreciate your support!
