2016 March for Life & Walk for Life
LCMS Life Ministry and other pro-life supporters gathered from coast to coast in January 2016 to remember the value and worth of each child — born and unborn.
The 43rd annual March for Life on Jan. 22 in Washington protested the U.S. Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe v. Wade decision to legalize abortion.
Lutherans also gathered on Jan. 23 in San Francisco to bring attention to the millions of children who have lost their lives because of abortion, and the LCMS continued to make a strong theological case for the sanctity of life from the moment of conception.
