The Assembly for Life began as a way for those who couldn’t travel to Washington, DC, for the annual March for Life, to be able to gather and witness to the value of life and to mark the anniversary of the awful Roe v. Wade that unconstitutionally forced legalization of abortion on all 50 states. Over the years, it has developed into a gathering with a power and purpose of its own as an opportunity to witness to the value and dignity of all human life.
Dozens of strong pro-life voices have addressed the Assembly over the years, recently including Fr. Frank Pavone; Mother Olga Yaqob; Cardinal Seán O’Malley; Abby Johnson, the former abortion clinic director turned pro-lifer; former Vatican ambassador and Boston mayor Ray Flynn; Prof. Anthony Esolen of Providence College; Rev. Eugene F. Rivers III of Azusa Community Church in Boston; and more.
The Assembly is held each year around the anniversary of Roe v. Wade in that cradle of liberty and free speech in Boston, Faneuil Hall, the same space used by great American orators such as Samuel Adams, James Otis, and others who advocated for American Independence. Today, it is an appropriate location for the continuing fight for freedom for the unborn and vulnerable from unjust death.
