Continuing a long tradition this October, Massachusetts Citizens for Life will honor Respect Life Month with our Annual Massachusetts March for Life around Boston Common on Sunday, October 1, 2017 from 1 to 4pm.
On April 28th, Massachusetts Citizens For Life held its annual Respect Life Walk, drawing hundreds of pro-life individuals from around the state as well as New Hampshire and Rhode Island.
The change in venue allowed the walk participants to take pictures in front of a memorial dedicated to the 55+ million unborn babies whose lives were ended by abortion. Below are pictures of a few of the pro-life individuals who posed for pictures for us in front of the memorial.
We want to thank all those who helped make this years walk a success, especially to all our walkers and sponsors. You can still make a donation toward the walk by clicking here, or by going to our walk website: http://respectlifewalk.org/
Despite the heavy rain on the morning of June 28, 2015, hundreds of pro-life activists attended the annual Massachusetts March For Life (formerly known as the Respect Life Walk to Aid Mother’s and Children) on Boston Common.
The event began with a rally at the Parkman Bandstand with speakers from all different backgrounds. We had young adults and students who explained how they got involved with MCFL and the Pro-Life Movement as well as Cori Connor-Morse who bravely tells her heart-wrenching story of regret following her abortion and how she came to find hope and forgiveness. We were also grateful to have pro-life Champion, Representative Jim Lyons, as well as Cardinal Sean O’Malley who gave the crowd a final blessing before the march began. This year’s March Baby, Maura, won the crowd over blowing kisses as she was introduced before she and her family started the march.
The march route stepped off the common and down Beacon Street, crossed Arlington Street, Boylston Street, and back around the common grounds. The crowd stopped at the State House as we gathered for a moment of silence and prayed for our legislators and state officials so that they would work to defend the right to life of all from conception to natural death.
We want to thank all who attended this event to make it a huge success. We cannot wait to do it again next year!

It was a moving March! According to the news, it was 52 degrees with heavy rain on Sunday, but as the 2016 Mass. March for Life finished at the Bandstand on Boston Common, everyone was still together, still cheering and chanting. The spirit was amazing! There were definitely more Marchers than last year, when it also rained, which would make it close to 400 people. My barometer is always baby carriages and I am thrilled to say there were dozens and dozens, filled with adorable little people! (Which reminds me that Oliver, our 2016 March Baby, is even cuter than his picture.)
