Maryland March for Life to Hold Annual March in Annapolis

by | Mar 8, 2024

The Maryland March for Life will hold its annual march on Monday, March 11, 2024, starting at 4:30PM. The March for Life will begin from St. Mary’s Church at 109 Gloucester Street, Annapolis. A Youth Rally and Catholic and Non-Denominational services will be held prior to the march. As is the cherished tradition by many who have attended the march for years, free Chik Fil-A sandwiches will be offered to registered attendees.

Keynote speakers at the Rally near Lawyers Mall include Ryan Bomberger of the Radiance Foundation and Laura Bogley, Executive Director of Maryland Right to Life.

For decades pro-life advocates have attended the Maryland March for Life to stand for the sanctity of Life and to voice their opposition to extreme pro-abortion legislation and tax-payer abortion funding in Maryland, where abortion through birth is state law. This year, attendees, who are expected to number in the thousands, will march in opposition to the deadly so-called Right to “Reproductive Freedom” constitutional amendment. This NARAL endorsed model legislation was defeated no less than three times before it was finally pushed through in the 2023 Maryland General Assembly. The amendment will be a ballot question, with vague and misleading language in the November of 2024 election.

While the term “Reproductive Freedom” is yet undefined, the amendment most notably would:

  • Enshrine the right to abortion through birth into the Maryland State Constitution. There are now three all trimester (late term) abortion facilities in Maryland.
  • Be used to suppress pro-life speech and action in the state, putting pregnancy centers at risk.
  • Bar any future attempts to pass lifesaving legislation such as a partial birth abortion or dismemberment bans.
  • AND….Bill sponsors have stated that the amendment includes new rights that may include commercial uses of human embryos and transgender rights including the use of puberty blocking drugs and surgical mutilation of genitalia – even among children, without parental consent.

Sponsors of the Maryland March for Life include: Maryland Right to Life, Maryland Coalition for Life, Students for Life, Knights of Columbus, Maryland Family Institute, Wellspring Life Ministry, Jewish Pro-Life Foundation, Charles County Right to Life, & St. Louis Parish and the Peroutka Family.
