Pro-lifers not deterred by D.C.'s new mandates

Despite new COVID restrictions, a global interfaith coalition equipping Christians to defend the family and build a civilization of love is proceeding with plans for the upcoming March for Life.

Because of the uptick in omicron cases, Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser (D) has instituted a strict vaccine mandate that is to go into effect just a few days before the January 21st March for Life.

"The official March for Life will take place, so people can count on being able to march," says Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse of the Ruth Institute. "What you can't count on is whether you'll be able to go to the bathroom or a restaurant while you're in D.C. because, that's dependent on vaccine status, this onerous new regulation that the city government of Washington, D.C. has come up with."

She believes the mayor knows that pro-lifers are among those least likely to be vaccinated due to concerns that fetal cells were and are used in vaccine development and production.

Another organization holding activities that week is Students for Life of America (SFLA), a pro-life organization that exists to recruit, train, and mobilize the pro-life generation on high school and college campuses in all 50 states to abolish abortion. Vaccine mandate or no vaccine mandate, SFLA asserts the pro-life generation will not miss what it expects to be the "last official anniversary" of Roe v. Wade.

"They are having what they call The National Pro-Life Summit the day after the march, Saturday the 22nd, and they are open for business," Dr. Morse relays. "God bless them a thousand times. They are intending to have their event as planned. They are doing everything possible to comply with these absurd regulations."

So Morse gives Students for Life credit for not being intimidated or cowed by what she refers to as "unjustified" regulations from D.C. And she reiterates that she does not think the timing of their implementation is a coincidence.
