The March for Life (M4L) is the nation’s largest annual gathering of anti-abortion extremists. Each January, since 1974, The March has gathered hundreds of thousands of extremists to DC to protest the anniversary of Roe v Wade.
For the past several years, Abortion Access Front has mobilized counter-protests to shine a bright light on the extremist views of the organizations involved and their enormous influence on state and federal policy.
So it came as no surprise, that when our team at AAF watched the January 6th violence at the Capitol, that we immediately identified former keynote March For Life speakers, March For Life participants, and many other leaders in the anti-abortion movement among the white supremacist insurrection. We also collected dozens of social media posts from former March for Life speakers, cheering on the attempted coup.
At once, AAF began sounding the alarm, contacting the authorities, flooding our social media with videos showing these “pro-life” hypocrites in DC calling for a revolution, and sharing all of it with the media. In spite of the media coverage, ten full days after the attempted coup, M4L was still encouraging its thousands of supporters to travel to DC for their January 29th rally and march.
But on January 15th, FOR SOME REASON they abruptly changed course and announced that they’d be going virtual this year.
We will be investigating as to what led to this sudden shift, but we will take it as a victory. It seemed to us that canceling a live event chocked full of unmasked, angry, anti-abortion, Trump loving supremacists, on the heels on an attempted takeover of the government, WOULD BE A NO BRAINER.
But let’s be clear – whether IRL or online, the March for Life continues to attract some of the most extreme anti-abortion organizations in America. They promote anti-science, violent, and inflammatory messaging that puts providers and patents in danger, and radicalizes politicians, who in turn create the harmful laws we are fighting against today.
AAF is planning on countering every word of this march with facts and research and we need your voice!
Join us for our virtual campaign to counter protest the March for Life, and sound the alarm using the information we’ve gathered about the intersections of all these extremist elements.
Stay tuned to this page and subscribe to our mailing list, because in the coming days, we will be announcing all our plans to virtually fight back!
The Unmasked sites are a project of Abortion Access Front, a coven of hilarious badass feminists who use humor and pop culture to expose the haters fighting against reproductive rights. We believe if there is not laughter, dancing and sexy time in your revolution, you need to fix that.
