47 of the Best Signs From the First Post-Roe March for Life

Breaking News

WASHINGTON, D.C.—The Daily Signal reporters and staffers from The Heritage Foundation are on the ground for the 50th annual March for Life, and they’re sending in some of the best signs from the first march to take place since the Supreme Court overturned its infamous 1973 Roe v. Wade decision last June. (The Daily Signal is the news outlet of The Heritage Foundation.)

Americans across the country traveled to the nation’s capital to register their protest of the killing of thousands of babies at the hands of the abortion industry. While the Supreme Court has invalidated the finding in Roe that the Constitution enshrines a right to abortion, opening up the issue to regulation in the 50 states, marchers demand that Congress act to limit or abolish the intentional killing of babies in the womb.

Last week, the House of Representatives passed a bill to save the lives of babies born in botched abortions, and only one Democrat, Rep. Henry Cuellar of Texas, voted with Republicans for it.

All but three Democrats voted against a resolution condemning the attacks on at least 78 pro-life groups and 108 churches since the leak in early May of the draft opinion in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the Supreme Court decision overruling Roe.
