Washington, DC – Tomorrow marks the 41st memorial year since the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision decriminalized abortion in America, and Operation Rescue will be marking the day with events in Washington, D.C. and in Wichita, Kansas.
Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue, is currently in the Nation’s Capital participating in several activities today, culminating in the March for Life on January 22.
This morning, Newman led a group of pro-life supporters in a protest at the Washington, D.C. Planned Parenthood abortion clinic. He will also be participating in conferences sponsored by Students for Life and Americans United for Life.
If you are in the DC area, please join Troy at the March for Life Rally at noon on the National Mall.

In Wichita, Operation Rescue will host a memorial on January 22 from 6-7 pm at our national headquarters located at 3013 E. Central Avenue. We plan to make an important announcement concerning a project to close Kansas abortion clinics at that time. (Click for more information.)
“This is a year of great hope and expectations for the pro-life movement. Last year, 87 abortion clinics closed. Abortion numbers continue to drop and pro-life sentiment is at an all-time high,” said Newman. “Now is the time to press our advantage. We are here to win, and there is a greater sense than ever that victory is just around the corner. It’s an exciting time to be a pro-life activist, and we pray everyone that can will join us to mark this important day and take a stand for Life!”
