The annual March for Life (held on January 27, 2017) in Washington, D.C., commemorates the anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s infamous Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion on January 22, 1973. Additional information will be announced for local March for Life movements.

Additional information will be provided by Knights of Columbus Council 1819 for local March for Life events.All Knights and their families, particularly those in the greater Washington, D.C., area, and nearby states, are urged to join the march. Councils planning bus trips to Washington should book their charters early. Knights should carry council banners and K of C posters, wear jackets with the K of C emblem, and walk together to show the Order’s support for the right to life.

Knights who cannot go to Washington can participate in local or state pro-life demonstrations. State pro-life chaircouples will have information on local activities sponsored or supported by Knights in their jurisdictions.

Knights are urged to schedule prayer services for unborn children at government monuments or participate in other appropriate activities. Invite Squires’ circles, ladies’ auxiliaries, parish pro-life groups and similar organizations to attend or co-sponsor planned activities.

To assist your pro-life activities, the Supreme Council offers the following materials (all of which are free of charge when ordered in reasonable quantities; there is only a shipping charge): Source>
