With the theme of January 2021's March for Life being revealed virtually on Thursday, September 10th, Montini Catholic students are looking forward to participating in this year's march, from home. "This year's theme is "Together Strong: Life Unites," informed Mrs. Wall. "Due to the circumstances with Covid, we are not able to go to the march in Washington, D.C. this year, which is so disappointing."
The historic march, (to be held on January 29, 2021) will celebrate its 48th year. January 22nd marks the anniversary of the 1973 Supreme Court decision making abortion on demand available throughout the United States. Each year the Montini attendees support the March for Life Education and Defense Fund in their goal to overturn Roe v. Wade.
Despite the unique circumstances holding them back, Mrs. Wall and her group of young activists plan on gathering for any and all virtual events held in conjunction with the March for Life. "We have heard that there will be opportunities to hear speakers and participate virtually in praise and worship," she said. "Our hope is to have an event at school where student can participate virtually, possibly share a meal and discuss pro-life issues."
"I have not been able to attend a march in D.C. yet," said junior Ruby Dawson. "So I am looking forward to taking part this year for sure. Last year I was able to attend a showing here at school of "Unplanned," which is a movie about the abortion industry. So, this year I really want to get more involved and get together with students who feel the same way as I do."
Last year (photo above) Montini Catholic sent forty students to D.C. to stand up for life. "Our numbers keep growing and growing every year, so, despite this unusual year, we're hoping that just as many, if not more, students choose to take part in activities this January."
