From Jeanne F. Mancini
March for Life President
It may be the month of March, but the momentum created in January at the March for Life must continue – precious unborn babies, moms, and families need us to build a culture of life!
I invite you to join our Give Life Challenge. Each month we will provide unique pro-life challenges for you to participate in and bring to your local community, along with the resources needed.
It’s not too late to sign up to receive these challenges right to your inbox every month! I've included this month’s challenge below so you don’t miss out.
Our Give Life Challenge for this month is to participate in some capacity in World Down Syndrome Day on March 21!
Sadly, a “culture of perfection” in the United States has led to an abortion rate of 85% for babies diagnosed with Down Syndrome in utero, which means that the large majority of these beautiful babies are never carried to term. But, in truth, every life is a gift and abortion takes the life of a unique and unrepeatable individual. What is really needed is education about Down Syndrome and the many wonderful resources that are available for expectant families who have received this news.
That’s where you come in!
On Saturday, March 21, join us in participating in World Down Syndrome Day and let the world know that we value our friends, family and neighbors with Down Syndrome – every life is a gift! We will share more resources and educational information throughout the month, and on World Down Syndrome Day, here are a few things you can do:
- Share a March for Life image on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram (or all 3) promoting the dignity of individuals with Down Syndrome.
- Participate in the “#Socksbattle4DS” social media campaign.
- Take part in the “World Down Syndrome Day Random Act of Kindness” effort.
- Educate your friends and family by sharing a Down Syndrome fact on social media!
After taking the Give Life Challenge this month, let us know and we will send you an inspiring March for Life bumper sticker!
Give the gift of life this month by participating in World Down Syndrome Day. Together, we must keep marching on to build a culture of life!
