On April 15, 2020, the passion of the national March for Life comes to the streets of Hartford, CT. The national March for Life has a plan to hold local pro-life marches in every state capital. Hartford was chosen as one of the first cities to implement this plan and we couldn’t be more grateful.
There is no better time than now for a Connecticut March for Life. Our pro-abortion elected officials are seeking to pass discriminatory legislation that would limit the free speech rights of our pregnancy centers. These centers give out tens of thousands of dollars worth of support yearly to CT families without any government funds.
Connecticut pro-abortion politicians are pushing for the legalization of assisted suicide and for Planned Parenthood to receive more funding when 75% of our taxpayer funds cover abortions in CT. We live in a state where teenagers need their parent’s permission for a professional tan, tattoo, and piercing but don’t have to inform them if they want a surgical abortion. It’s time for the pro-life movement to rise up in Connecticut! This is the hour to take a stand for vulnerable babies, mothers, and their families.
Our team at the Family Institute has partnered with the March for Life staff, and the Connecticut Catholic Conference to organize this march. We are expecting thousands to gather together on April 15th and march to the Capitol.
All of the details for the event can be found at www.ctmarchforlife.org and more details will be added as we finalize them. We are planning a short pre-program at a location nearby the CT Capitol, followed by a march to the Capitol and a rally with dynamic pro-life speakers. We’ll have leaders from the pregnancy centers, elected officials, pastors, priests, and everyday people sharing their personal stories about abortion, adoption and pro-life activism. In addition, we’ll have a special guest speaker who is yet to be announced. This rally will uplift, inspire and strengthen you in your stand for life.
The march takes place midweek on a Wednesday because we want our elected officials to join us and witness our march to the Capitol. The march date is during the week of Spring Break so all the CT public schools will be out. We ask parents to bring their children as this will be a peaceful, positive way for them to express their beliefs that human life is worth protecting.
We want you to get the word out to as many people as possible! Share the website link with your family and friends. You can download the social media graphics and make them your Facebook picture or cover photo. Please talk to your ministers, community leaders, and pro-life non-profit organizations about this event. If you’d like to volunteer to make calls contact Christina at FIC’s office, 860-548-0066. We have a list of CT churches and could use volunteers to contact them. Also remember to follow FIC on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for updates! We’re in the process of finishing up a powerful promo video that will be released soon!
