The March for Life Education and Defense Fund announced its full list of speakers for the 49th annual March for Life on Jan. 21 in Washington D.C.

Marchers will be addressed in person by Members of Congress, Down Syndrome advocate Katie Shaw, Duck Dynasty star Lisa Robertson, actor Kirk Cameron, and other prominent pro-life leaders whose stories will inspire marchers to build a culture of life. Fr. Mike Schmitz, the Keynote Speaker for this year’s March for Life Rose Dinner, will also speak at the rally.

The theme for this year’s March for Life, Equality Begins in the Womb, highlights how true equality is only possible if we recognize that children in the womb also deserve protection.

The march has been held annually since the legalization of abortion through the Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court decision in 1973.

Moody Publishers has launched a new digital resource designed to support and expand on their print publishing resources called Bibletolife.com. The website contains hundreds of pages and articles aimed at reaching those searching for spiritual answers online.
