Hundreds of thousands of people will march through Washington D.C. today, marking the anniversary of Roe v. Wade and partaking in the largest pro-life demonstration in the world. Mollie Hemingway, senior editor at The Federalist, and John-Henry Westen, editor-in-chief and cofounder of LifeSiteNews hosted the Federalist Radio Hour to discuss this year’s March For Life and how abortion law has impacted the country for decades.
“A very special part of the March started about a decade ago and that is the women who experience abortion themselves, have some to share their stories and to save their sisters from experiencing the same tragedy,” Westen said. “They’re a testimony that the pro-life movement cares not only about the children per say, but also about women themselves.”
They discussed last year’s news of Planned Parenthood’s practice of altering abortion procedures to be able to secure valuable human organs from abortion children and the impact of the undercover videos. “I think it brought home the killing in such a way that it made America wake up and take offense,” Westen said. “It also gave pro-life governors the ability to say, ‘Woah, wait a minute, we are going to defund Planned Parenthood.’”
