This is why we march!
ChurchPOP editors Jacqueline Burkepile and Caroline Bortle joined thousands of pro-lifers at the March for Life on Fri., Jan. 20, 2023 in Washington, D.C. We asked several marchers for their best signs, taking pictures all over the D.C. National Mall.
This year’s marchers held their signs with pride, expressing their passion for the pro-life movement post-Roe v. Wade.
They understood that while the Supreme Court overturned Roe in June of 2022, the fight still matters. Unborn children are in danger across the country, where abortion remains legal in multiple states.
Below, Jacqueline and Caroline snapped photos with priests, seminarians, high school students, religious sisters, and more.
Here’s some of the best signs we spotted during the 2023 March for Life:
These seminarians from St. Paul Seminary in St. Paul, Minn. held the sign, “Every person has the right to be born”:
This woman held a 40 Days for Life sign while listening to the march’s speakers:
Marchers waved this “adopt” flag while also listening to speakers:
This young high school student held a homemade Star Wars sign that reads, “Protect the Child! This is the way! – Students for Life”:

This young man held a “choose life” sign. The sign also says, “we are the pro-life generation,” “choose life,” “life is my choice,” “unborn lives matter,” “I am not trash,” and more:

The young woman’s sign below also reads, “Telling a woman she can’t be successful without the right to choose is inherently anti-woman!”
Another young lady’s sign reads, “The right to control your body should not include the right to terminate someone else’s.”
