Annual Rally and March for Life is Jan. 22 in Topeka

Kansans for Life will hold the annual Rally and March for Life in Topeka on January 22. The day will be full of events including educational workshops for teens and adults, an interdenominational worship service and a rally on the south steps of the State Capitol Building.

This is in memory of the anniversary of Roe V. Wade which legalized abortion. Since that day in 1973, over 63 million babies have been aborted in the United States.

Registration begins at 8:30 on the ground floor of the Capitol Visitor Center inside the north entrance. Exhibit booths will be in the first-floor rotunda. Visitors can take a tour and watch the Kansas legislature, attend workshops and presentations, and attend religious services.

From 9:30-10:30 a.m. there will be presentations on “My Own Unplanned Journey from Planned Parenthood to the Pro-Life Movement,” presented by Wichita KFL Member Julie Buresh; and “Abortion Pill Reversal,” presented by KFL State Office Director Amy Torkelson.

The March for Life begins at 12:30 and goes from TPAC at 8th & Quincy to the south Capitol steps. The Rally for Life begins there at 1:00 with elected officials and special speakers.

A lunch by donation will be held between 11:30 and 2:30 in the basement of Mater Dei-Assumption Church nearby.

From 2:00-3:30 p.m., workshops will be held on “KFL Speaker Training” and “Social Media Skills for Pro-Life Activists.”

After the April 2019 Kansas Supreme Court decision found a “right to abortion” in the Kansas Constitution, the Topeka Rally for Life may be more important than ever.

“Rally for Life is an opportunity to stand with fellow pro-lifers,” said Mary Kay Culp of Kansans for Life, “including elected officials, to demonstrate that Kansas is Pro-Life.”

Meanwhile, the 47th National March for Life, taking place this year on Fri. Jan. 24, 2020, is the World’s largest Pro-Life event, held at our Nation’s Capital in Washington D. C.  Abortion is the greatest injustice of our time and people young and old march each year to end abortion. This year’s walk starts at 12 noon at the National Mall, with prescheduled guests and pro-life speakers.

A rally and Christian concert is scheduled before the walk. At 1:00 pm the march will go up Constitution Ave. to the Supreme Court and capital building where in 1973 abortion was legalized after the landmark decision was issued in the Roe v Wade and Doe v Bolton cases.

Since Roe v Wade over 63 million children have been killed in the womb.
