Register for the Fall 2019 Mass. March for Life.
This year, we'll double our impact, visibly demonstrating the strength of numbers of those who support saving, instead of discarding, the lives of our women and preborn. This event will be held in Western Massachusetts, location TBA.
Register for the 2020 Massachusetts March & Walk For Life.
It's never too early to start planning when a plan can save instead of take lives.
Submit your $25 entry fee below, and get started on that fundraising!
Most of our marchers have never participated in a fundraising event, and yet the average first-time walker can raise over $1,000.
Here are some fundraising tips:
Make a plan. Work with your team to set a fundraising goal and develop a simple plan.
Use your personal profile on our web page as a fundraising page. The second you register, find your unique link (for example: masscitizensforlife.org/cj), and get busy on social media! Statistics show that friends connected via FaceBook and email, when asked, are 5x more likely to pitch in to your walk than those not given an easy online way to support you. Even if computers aren't your communication method of choice, you will find this tool simple, and our team is always available to answer any questions you have.
Don’t Be Afraid. You never know who may have been deeply impacted by our throwaway attitude towards our fellow human beings. From abortion-coercion, to post-abortive suicide, from doctor-prescribed death to siblings who have lost siblings to abortion... So many people are suffering in silence – your strength will be their inspiration, and invitation, to heal.
Most people need to be asked 6 times before they make a donation. Just because the first Facebook status or email didn’t receive a donation, does not mean you won’t receive one. Follow-up with everyone you know. Again. And again. And again! Lives are on the line.
Spread Awareness to Save Lives. The most important aspect of your fundraising effort is educating people about our mission. Think of it like dominoes: the facts that you share with one will get passed along to another. You may just be the instrument to save an irreplaceable life.
- Show Your Gratitude. Thank everyone who supports you. You can show it by phone, show it in person, show it in personal card. But let your gratitude show. Those who partner with you on this historic walk should know that their contribution- large or small- means the world to you, and is critical to the cause.
- Make a plan. Work with your team to set a fundraising goal and develop a simple plan.

Should Massachusetts promote abortion access over even the woman's safety?
S.1209/H.3320, the "R.O.E." Act, will kill women like Keisha. It will allow doctors to kill or leave to die women like Claire. It will leave young girls like these to be exploited by abusers and the sex industry.
It is problematic enough that it is opposed by citizens all across the political divide, both pro-life and pro-choice.
Say NO to extremism and state-sponsored irresponsibility towards our most vulnerable citizens. Sign the petition now and contact your legislator to oppose the "R.O.E." Act.
Read a full analysis of this bill here.1,563 signatures
Do you believe...
...that a child in the womb at seven, eight, or nine months should be deprived of life, even though she is no physical threat to her mother? Because "R.O.E" does, changing our law to make abortion elective all the way up to birth.
...that abortion should be legal after birth? Because "R.O.E." does, allowing for passive infanticide by refusing medical care to a child born alive during an abortion.
...that a pregnant 13 year old should be abandoned to her sexual abuser, and forced into an abortion? Because "R.O.E." does, removing Massachusetts laws that require parental consent or judicial protection and supervision.
...that Massachusetts should increase its tax funding, using your money, to support abortions? Because "R.O.E." does, allocating "Healthy Start" funds towards abortion procedures throughout all nine months.
...that women's health isn't as important as men's? Because "R.O.E." does, farming out dangerous late term surgical abortion procedures to unregulated outpatient facilities, which are not required to keep life saving medical equipment on hand.
S.1209 legalizes infanticide, promotes abortion access over women's health, and removes all protections for human beings in the womb even when viable.
Oppose this anti-life legislation, say no to "R.O.E.", and Sign the petition here!
