‘Every single life matters to God’: 48th Annual March for Life Held Virtually

Pravmir.com team | 30 January 2021

Notable pro-life figures, including state lawmakers from both major political parties and former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow, gave remarks at the first-ever virtual March for Life event on Friday, reports the Christian Post.

For the first time in its 48-year history, the March for Life was held virtually due to the coronavirus pandemic. Last year, the annual March for Life occurred weeks before the first nationwide shutdowns began in late March.

Tebow gave a speech before the online audience, speaking about his mother’s decision not to abort him while he was in the womb despite major pregnancy complications.

“I’m so grateful my mom gave me a chance at life, because many times she could have made the choice to do something different,” said Tebow. “But because of her pro-life story, I get to share my story.”

“I do believe that every single life matters to God,” Tebow declared.

Jeanne Mancini, president of the March for Life Education and Defense Fund, gave introductory remarks, explaining that this year’s theme was “together strong, life unites.”

“Our theme is meant not only to highlight the unity of our cause, but to also highlight the destructive and divisive reality of abortion,” said Mancini.

Mancini cited examples of this destruction, such as abortion “divides a mother from her child,” “divides a man from his fatherhood,” and “abortion divides the world from love.”

“Every tiny child brings love into the world. Every life lost to abortion is a loss of love in this world,” she continued. “Abortion divides us from our world and reality.”

Since you are here…

…we do have a small request. More and more people visit Orthodoxy and the World website. However, resources for editorial are scarce. In comparison to some mass media, we do not make paid subscription. It is our deepest belief that preaching Christ for money is wrong.

Having said that, Pravmir provides daily articles from an autonomous news service, weekly wall newspaper for churches, lectorium, photos, videos, hosting and servers. Editors and translators work together towards one goal: to make our four websites possible - Pravmir.ru, Neinvalid.ru, Matrony.ru and Pravmir.com. Therefore our request for help is understandable.

For example, 5 euros a month is it a lot or little? A cup of coffee? It is not that much for a family budget, but it is a significant amount for Pravmir.

If everyone reading Pravmir could donate 5 euros a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.

Dear Friends,

Our website exists owing to your generous assistance, thanks to the funds donated by our beloved readers.

Please assist us in the continuation of our work.
