2019 March for Life

Planning for the 2019 March For Life to be held in Washington, DC on Friday, January 18, 2019 is well underway. The gathering will mark 46 years of Roe v. Wade in America – and sadly, the loss of more than 60 million babies to abortion.

Last January’s March for Life was a historic success including record participation, and unprecedented media coverage!

We need all New York Hibernians to be represented in Washington DC. We ask each Division to fund-raise, collect or donate something to send an AOH contingent to DC in 2019.

Read the latest edition of Hibernians for Life or visit the March for Life website for additional information and ideas to support the rally.

Please try whether through a joint effort of collecting funds to lease a bus for your group of Hibernians, or attending the march another way. A dedicated effort by our Members proves more enjoyable in the long run and attracts new people to help the Pro Life cause. Men, women and children all benefit from attending the March For Life. It is more imperative than ever to make our Pro Life voice heard in our culture. A culture of life is the empowered choice. The time is now to build on the momentum.

Will your District, County or any Division be organizing a bus to the March for Life? If so what are the plans so far? Please email your participation plans to Jack O’Brien, NY State Pro Life Chairman at AOH11@Live.com

2017 National March for Life

power-of-one-2017

— Protect and Celebrate Life —

The National March for Life will be held on Friday, January 27, 2017 in Washington, DC. The theme for this year’s march is “The Power of One”  — One person can make a difference in the world, whether in the life of one person or many. Sadly, in the U.S. alone, 1 million babies are not even given the opportunity to live and change the world each year. Building a culture of life and ending abortion takes each and every person. Starting with your family or neighborhood, our collective efforts will change hearts and minds, save lives, and build a culture of life. 

The March for Life continues to be a leader in the pro-life community and it is our goal to continue fight and inform the public on how we can overturn Roe v. Wade. Our job is not done until the voiceless have a voice that is heard. Realizing that no sound action can grow out of a vacuum of purpose, in 1974 the March for Life formulated and included in its charter of incorporation. Purposefully, the Life Principles are not framed in the negative tone of “thou shalt not,” and are framed in the positive tone of duty and responsibility of each human being and of society (source: March for Life).
