March for Life

LCMS members join pro-life events around the U.S.

In January 2018, members of LCMS congregations joined marches in Washington, D.C., Chicago, San Francisco and around the nation to stand for life.

During the somber 45th anniversary month of the U.S. Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe v. Wade decision to legalize abortion, LCMS Life Ministry and other pro-life supporters gathered to remind the government of its role to protect life.

The temperatures remained below freezing on Jan. 14 as over 6,000 people gathered for the 2018 March for Life Chicago, setting a record for the largest pro-life gathering in the Midwest, according to the event’s website.

Thousands gathered Jan. 19 on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., for the annual March for Life.

In San Francisco, LCMS members also stood with other pro-life advocates, bearing witness to the God who created and sustains life.
