March For Life Bus Information
Each year, pro-life advocates from around the country travel to Washington, D.C. to hold the largest public witness to stand up for the unborn on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, January 22nd. As you well know, Roe v. Wade and its sister case, Doe v. Bolton, legalized abortion here in the United States throughout all nine months of pregnancy. Since its radical ruling on January 22, 1973, over 55 million unborn babies have died due to abortion, and countless women harmed.
Hundreds of thousands of pro-life activists take to the streets in Washington, D.C. to stand up and be a voice for the voiceless. Do you want to be one of them?
Coordinators from around the Commonwealth are organizing buses to attend this year’s March For Life. Some have overnight stays at local hotels, while some travel through the night to get to the March and arrive back home early the next morning.
Below is a list of the buses that are traveling from Massachusetts. If you would like to participate in one of these trips, or you would like more information, please contact the bus captains listed below.
