The Annual March for Life in protest of the 1973 Supreme Court decision, Roe v. Wade, declaring abortion a constitutional right, will take place at Noon, January 22, 1998, beginning in the Ellipse just south of the White House. After several speeches, the March will proceed up Constitution Boulevard to the Supreme Court Building, after which participants will visit the offices of their Senators and Representatives in Congress. As we have done since 1991, PLAGAL will march.
Members of the Pro-Life Alliance of Gays and Lesbians will gather at 11:30 A.M. before the statue of Benjamin Franklin in front of the Old Post Office, near the corner of Twelfth Street and Pennsylvania Avenue, Northwest. We will then walk to the corner of Constitution Boulevard and Fifteenth Street, where we will join Feminists for Life, Democrats for Life, and other non-traditional pro-life groups for the March.
As is our custom, at the top of Capitol Hill, we will stop in front of the Dirksen Senate Office Building and distribute flyers as the rest of the March goes by. By distributing these flyers, we hope to let other pro-lifers know the arguments that we as lesbian and gay pro-lifers have found most effective in advancing the pro-life cause in our community. Though Congress will not be in session on January 22nd, at 3:30 P.M., at 4:15 we have an appointment with Congressman Tom Davis of Virginia. Plan to be your most persuasive.
PLEASE PLAN TO ATTEND BOTH THE ANNUAL MEETING AND THE MARCH.
