Michigan 2023 March for Life at the Capitol

By: Ken Warzybok - Wed, Nov 8, 2023 7:43 PM

On Wednesday November 8th, thousands of people flocked to Lansing for the Michigan March for Life at the State Capitol in Lansing. This event commemorated the one-year anniversary since voters approved Proposal 3. The event drew a massive crowd, all united in their opposition to abortion, coming together to voice their concerns and make their voices heard and sending a clear message to our elected officials that we demand action and accountability. A federal lawsuit was filed earlier in the day to challenge the constitutionality of the abortion amendment passed in Michigan last year.


This march serves as a reminder that our work to protect Life at all stages is far from over. However, events like these give us hope and inspire us to continue fighting for a better future. Most of all, it reminds us all of the importance of civic engagement and the need to stand up for what we believe in.
