Today I watched the March for Life in a livestream from EWTN
The coverage, including the rally on the National Mall, with speakers Kellyanne Conway, VP Mike Pence, Eric Metaxas (author of Bonhoeffer), Mia Love and Cardinal Timothy Dolan can be accessed here.
The rally was mind blowing. It was full of inspiration, love, respect, prayer and hope. If you want to be uplifted I would encourage you to watch, even if you are not prolife.
This post will consist of screenshots from my computer and links to tweets from people who attended the march.
Unlike the Pink Kitty Ladies protest against President Trump last weekend, which featured hateful screaming speeches, women who wore vaginas on their heads, and signs which desecrated the Catholic religion, today’s event was classy, kind, prayerful, inspiring and full of love and respect for all human beings around the world.
But before I share the beauty I saw today, I must mention some ugliness. On both Facebook and Twitter, the ugliness of last weekend is intruding on today’s march. That is to be expected of course; the “tolerant” crowd are simply doing what they do.
However, they are crafting a narrative about crowd size, saying that the Pink Kitty protest was much bigger than today’s March for Life.
That may or may not be true; from what I saw today, there were probably 150,000 or more people marching for life, but time will tell.
However, the Pink Kitties are not taking two important facts into account.
1) The March for Life has taken place every January for the past 44 years, even if the news media refuses to report it. If the Pink Kitties were placed next to all the marchers from this year and years past, it would be like comparing the number of men that many pro lifers have slept with (probably between 10 and zero) to the amount Madonna has slept with (no one will ever know for sure but most likely below a thousand).
Sorry for the picture I just painted, but I thought it was a good way to make my point. Last week’s March was a drop in the ocean.
2) The March for Life is not funded by George Soros, and the Pink Kitty-Trump protest almost certainly was.
Please read this Chicks on the Right article, Women’s March Organizers Funded By Notorious Leftist Billionaire George Soros.
New York Times columnist Asra Q. Nomani explains how she followed the money trail and how it all came back to Soros –
By my draft research, which I’m opening up for crowd-sourcing on GoogleDocs, Soros has funded, or has close relationships with, at least 56 of the march’s “partners,” including “key partners” Planned Parenthood, which opposes Trump’s anti-abortion policy, and the National Resource Defense Council, which opposes Trump’s environmental policies. The other Soros ties with “Women’s March” organizations include the partisan MoveOn.org (which was fiercely pro-Clinton), the National Action Network (which has a former executive director lauded by Obama senior advisor Valerie Jarrett as “a leader of tomorrow” as a march co-chair and another official as “the head of logistics”). Other Soros grantees who are “partners” in the march are the American Civil Liberties Union, Center for Constitutional Rights, Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch. March organizers and the organizations identified here haven’t yet returned queries for comment.
DUDE. That’s not just one or two Soros-linked organizations that oddly showed up in the behind-the-scenes financials for these protests. That’s a TON of left-leaning organizations getting cash from the living, breathing example of a Bond villain.
First terrorism, then Goldfinger. These progressive feminist marchers sure know how to pick their friends.
So, the Women’s March was kind of easy for those who participated.
It was held on a Saturday–March for Life is always held on a weekday when Congress is in session–and they didn’t have to raise a ton of money because George Soros funded them.
Their job consisted of knitting pussy hats, passing them out, donning vagina costumes and making those nasty signs showcased in Megan Fox’s PJ Media article (linked above). Then they went out and had fun listening to a woman who needs a mental health intervention.
Of course, they may have had to put out funds for transportation, but other than that, there was no grassroots activism. It was all planned by the Far Left.
Now for the images of today 🙂
Above is the March route. As you can see, the Mall, beginning at the Washington Monument (far left) stretches for blocks. When I attended the 2009 March for life, we were way back near the monument, not nearly close enough to hear the speeches or see the big screens (if they even had them back then).
The route is highlighted in red. It’s a long march up Constitution Avenue past the Capitol building and around the corner to the Supreme Court, where the march ends.
The above map was included in this article by International Business Times.
Above: Marchers gathered in front of the Supreme Court ahead of the actual March.
Below are more photos.
I took screenshots with my timestamp in the upper right corner. As you’ll see, this march was HUGE.
The following photos are in order of timestamp.
Above, the front of the March has reached the Supreme Court building at 2:38 pm. But there are still tens of thousands of marchers to come.
You can see the Washington Monument in the distance. There are still thousands marching.
In front of SCOTUS at 2:58 pm. President Trump’s tweet is featured.
Following are screenshots without timestamps that show the huge crowds.
Hooray! There’s Our Lady of Guadalupe as she really is, unlike the creepy and blasphemous effigies carried by Crazy Cat Ladies last week.
Our Lady of Guadalupe, pray for us!
Below are a few tweets from March attendees and others.

What a difference a week makes!
On a personal note, I have been involved on & off with the respect life movement since 2008.
Today’s March made history because, for the first time, the VP of the United States addressed the crowds.
I truly believe that we are making great strides toward changing hearts and minds in America.
And it is being done because of God, who is Love.
