Students for Life is countering at least 25 national Women’s Marches on October 2nd, 2021.
The Women’s March is self-described as “a women-led movement providing intersectional education on a diverse range of issues.” Unfortunately, one of their primary tenets is promoting & celebrating abortion. Under their “Unity Principles,” abortion support is the second listed…
“We believe in Reproductive Freedom. We do not accept any federal, state or local rollbacks, cuts or restrictions on our ability to access quality reproductive healthcare services, birth control, HIV/AIDS care and prevention, or medically accurate sexuality education. This means open access to safe, legal, affordable abortion and birth control for all people, regardless of income, location or education.”
In fact, many of the Women’s March’s October events changed their names to “Rallies for Abortion Justice.” So the objective and driving factor is fairly transparent.
We know that abortion betrays women and that women’s rights are not paid for with the blood of our children. At its essence, abortion is profoundly anti-women.
Students for Life has countered Women’s Marches before, including the 2016 March in Washington D.C. (at which our team was spit on, screamed at, and had our signs torn up). At the most recent event in D.C., abortion supporters spray-painted our staff, signs, and equipment.
Students for Life will also participate in the Purple Sash Revolution (PSR) prayer rally, Pray to End Abortion: #DismantleRoe, at the Supreme Court on Saturday, Oct. 2nd from 2-4 p.m.
Stay tuned for more information.

Why Would We Counter the Women’s March?
- Modern feminism is failing. They have abandoned all kinds of women who need safety and security, equal access to education and economic opportunity, and creative solutions to known issues of balance – balancing most women’s desires to succeed at home and at work, in relationships, and in a career.
- Failed feminists hold one idol above the rest – abortion. You can see this clearly in their absolute silence in defending women in countries like Afghanistan who are forced into marriage (including child brides), told to stay home, away from jobs and schools they enjoyed before the Taliban, or in their rejection of pro-life women who want to stand for female empowerment.
- Failed feminists don’t want women empowered to make their own choices. The only “choice” they want is abortion.
- You can’t be pro-woman when you ignore pro-life women (who are the majority), post-abortive women who regret their decisions, and women in the womb.
- It’s not a “Women’s March;” it’s an abortion march. Students for Life attended the D.C. Women’s March in 2020 and asked why they were there. Most women said it was because they were pro-abortion, because they hated Trump, and because they opposed Amy Coney Barrett being confirmed to the Supreme Court because she was pro-life. Our pro-life women were harassed, assaulted, and told we didn’t belong.
