43rd March for Life postponed; new date for event to be announced later
The March for Life planned for this Sunday, Jan. 17, 2021, is being postponed to a date that will be announced later. The event is held each year in remembrance of the anniversary of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion in our nation.
“This decision has been made in the interest of safety for the thousands of individuals, including elderly and disabled, and families with children who travel from all parts of the state to attend our annual march. In light of political unrest across the U.S. and reports of potential volatility at our State Capitol – combined with the ongoing high number of COVID-19 cases locally – this decision comes with much thought and consideration of all who love and defend human life in our state,” said Rose Mimms, executive director of Arkansas Right to Life. “Our organization’s peaceful March for Life will still happen, though not this week. We apologize to all who had already made their plans to attend.”
Mimms encouraged supporters to visit the organization’s website (www.artl.org) to get the latest information about the rescheduling of the March for Life and other pro-life activities throughout the year.
“We appreciate your ongoing support of the lifesaving work of Arkansas Right to Life and share your disappointment that current circumstances have resulted in this decision.”
