The Constitution Party of Georgia encourages all supporters to join with thousands of pro-life Georgians at the 2020 Georgia March for Life as we come together for the annual memorial service and silent march at Liberty Plaza in Atlanta on Wednesday, January 22, 2020. (Liberty Plaza is located across the street from the State Capitol on Capitol Avenue.)
Once a year, Georgians from all across the state who value the Personhood of every individual have the opportunity to make a powerful, demonstration standing together for life.
Everyone who wants to bring public attention to the tragedy of abortion is strongly encouraged to register and then join other pro-life supporters for the 2020 annual March for Life on Wednesday, January 22nd.
Sponsored by Georgia Right to Life (GRTL), the event will begin with a memorial service at Liberty Plaza in Atlanta at 11:30 a.m., followed by a silent, one-mile march through the city. The guest speaker will be Endia Bass, founder of “Out from Among Them Ministries.”
The event is intended to express sorrow for the more than 60 million children denied the chance at life, as well as for the women and men who have had their lives damaged by abortion. Families, friends, whole communities have been affected by the scourge of abortion.
“The blood-stained statistics on abortion remain horrific,” said Georgia Right to Life (GRTL) President Ricardo Davis. “But we need to look past the numbers and see the humanity of each person affected by this tragedy. They're family members, co-workers, fellow students and church members. Whether abortion is forced on a helpless victim as occurs in human trafficking, or occurs for another reason, abortion is an evil that has this nation in a death grip and that must be broken.
“The blood of those innocent precious children cries out for justice,” Davis said. “I ask all pro-life supporters to join GRTL at the Georgia March for Life -- recommitting to the cause of Personhood -- protecting those who can’t protect themselves. Together we will advance Personhood in Georgia through more prayer and teaching on the sanctity of life in our churches; more education in our communities; and more discernment in selecting our representatives in the legislature, law enforcement, and in the courts. We must be united in our message to lawmakers and jurists that we will no longer tolerate abortion on demand in Georgia.”
In addition to making a public statement, the march is a powerful and rewarding experience for those who take part.
For Atlanta resident Samantha Harrell, who will be attending her first march, the event is an opportunity to live out her faith in God.
“You’re most like Christ when you follow His commands to shepherd and assist the weak, the defenseless, the voiceless and the poor,” Harrell said. “I believe the march helps to humanize that mission.”
Harrell said her motivation is driven by the thought of “the defenseless, innocent babies in the womb suffering and dying during an abortion.”
She adds: "We're called to rock the boat, rattle the establishment, flip some tables over, and speak out against abuses carried out by those in power, regardless of the consequences."
Robert Martinez of Cumming, who will participate in his fifth march, first learned about the horrors of abortion as a young child when he found photographs of aborted babies his pro-life parents had.
"My mother explained how terribly wrong it is to kill pre-born children and that impression has been with me ever since," Martinez said.
"Science has established that human life begins at fertilization and that only confirms what God's Word proclaims," he said.
"When I march, I think of the pictures I saw as a child and am reminded of what my mother told me. My participation is for the millions of baby humans killed; for my mother and family; and for God's truth," Martinez added.
The Constitution Party of Georgia's platform is clear on the position of the sanctity of life:
A human being, whose life begins at fertilization and ends in natural death, is created in God's image. We recognize and affirm the legal personhood of all human beings, without exception. The first duty of the law is to prevent the shedding of innocent blood. Therefore it is the duty of all civil governments to secure and to safeguard the lives of persons from fertilization to natural death.
Please gather friends and family members to join us at the 2020 Georgia March for Life. Be counted and register today as one of thousands who cares enough to join others to silently pray and walk through the streets of Atlanta as we remember the millions of pre-born babies lost to abortion.
