Joint Statement on the Cancellation of the Connecticut March for Life
The sponsors of the Connecticut March for Life, with deep regret, have made the difficult decision to cancel the April 15th Connecticut March for Life. This decision was made out of concern for the health of those planning to attend and in line with the Governor’s Executive Order #7, which bans large events.
We know many people will be disappointed with the cancellation of the Connecticut March for Life, so we will be exploring options for holding the event at a future date. We are committed to ensuring that the pro-life voice be heard by the Governor and our legislators.
The response to the March was very positive, with many pro-life residents of Connecticut planning to attend. We want to thank everyone who was helping to coordinate getting the message out about the March and who undertook efforts to guarantee a large attendance. We hope to capitalize on that enthusiasm by setting a new date for a 2021 March which will be announced as soon as that decision has been made. Please stay tuned for future announcements.
