March for Life President Jeanne Mancini told Faithwire she is expecting some 100,000 demonstrators to show up for the March for Life, describing 2022 as “a banner year” for the pro-life cause.
“I haven’t seen the enthusiasm of the movement as it is now ever in my lifetime,” she said. “Especially with the Supreme Court case Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health, I think that pro-life America is excited and they see a very important and real victory within reach. No one knows the future, but the excitement is palpable. So I think the March for Life this year is a banner year.”
The theme for this year’s March for Life is “Equality Begins in the Womb.”
Mancini said the leadership team chose the theme “because equity and equality is something that’s getting a lot of conversation and it is important, but we wanted to insert into that conversation the unborn child.”
With that in mind, Mancini said she is particularly eager to hear from Katie Shaw, an Indiana woman who has Down syndrome and whose parents chose life over abortion.
“There’s a whole population of unborn children that are disproportionately targeted for abortion, and those are ones who receive a Down syndrome positive test,” Mancini said. “Katie received such a test … but her life has no less dignity or beauty than mine or yours and so we’re very excited to hear Katie share her testimony.”

‘Equality Begins in the Womb’: Tens of Thousands of Pro-Lifers Prepare to Defend the Unborn in Washington
Tens of thousands of pro-life citizens will take to the streets in Washington, D.C., today to affirm a powerful message about the importance of protecting the unborn: “equality begins in the womb.”

That proclamation — the official theme of the 2022 March For Life — is one that has been echoed for decades by activists and advocates seeking to reframe the abortion debate in America.
The annual march is a peaceful demonstration aimed at visually showing that the 1973 Roe v. Wade Supreme Court case legalizing abortion across the U.S. did anything but solve or dismiss the moral quagmires surrounding abortion.
The first March For Life unfolded in 1974 in the wake of the Roe decision, but the annual event has only grown and intensified over the years.
This is my family.They are here because I am here. I was conceived out of wedlock. I could have very easily been aborted, but thank God my mother carried me to term. I am against abortion and I am pro-life. I support the @March_for_Life happening in Washington DC today. pic.twitter.com/Rrr9NH0UbM
