2:30 to 3:30 p.m.
Pioneer Courthouse Square
March for Life begins immediately after rally
Oregon Right to Life is hosting our annual rally to commemorate the 43rd anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion throughout nine months of pregnancy. We will gather to honor the lives of the 58 million American unborn babies who have lost their lives to abortion. The Portland Praise Band will begin its life-celebrating concert at 2:15 p.m.
This year’s featured speaker is Lila Rose, pro-life activist and founder and president of Live Action, a new media non-profit dedicated to ending abortion and building a culture of life. Lila conducts undercover investigations of abortion facilities in the United States, including Planned Parenthood affiliates, and has unmasked some of America’s most notorious abortion facilities. David Daleiden, who was instrumental in the videos exposing Planned Parenthood’s marketing of aborted baby parts, works with Lila.
Live Action uses investigative journalism to expose the abortion industry’s threats against the vulnerable and defenseless. The group oversees the largest pro-life social media platform on the web, including over one million Facebook fans and over 58,000 followers on Twitter.
Lila is a regular guest on national television and radio programs. She was named among National Journal’s “25 Most Influential Washington Women Under 35.”
A special youth rally with Lila Rose will be held following the March for Life at the Urban Studio, 935 NW Davis, from 4:45 to 6 pm. Pizza and a band will be provided.
