The March for Life 2016 is on Friday — even in a blizzard.
The march’s social media campaign — #WhyWeMarch — provides a glimpse of how the pro-life movement and the choice for life has made a difference in the lives of thousands of men and women.
Live Action president Lila Rose tweeted a photo of a couple who canceled their abortion appointment to give their son a chance at life:

Jeanne Mancini, president of the March for Life Education and Defense Fund, praised Pitts, saying, “We are pleased and honored to present the March for Life Achievement Award to Congressman Joe Pitts.”
“The pro-life movement will be losing a true leader in Congress with the retirement of Congressman Pitts,” she added. “We praise his leadership as head of the Values Action Team, a coalition of pro-family Members, and as chair of the Health Subcommittee in Energy and Commerce. We are also deeply grateful for the example he has set for other Members of Congress in approaching his position with courage and humility.”
