March for Women's Lives Washington DC, April 25, 2004

April 25, 2004

NAPW is proud to have co-sponsored and participated in the 2004 March for Women's Lives. For examples of the range of reasons and marchers who joined us, please read the commentaries of four people who marched with us. Their stories appear as a special insert to NAPW's 2004 annual report.

NAPW marchers dressed as pregnant women to make the point that laws designed to restrict access to abortion in fact often hurt women and families who want to have babies. We also had children join us to make clear that the debate about abortion in this country is deliberately manipulated to keep us from focusing on a fundamental lack of commitment to America's children. There are ten million children without health insurance, more than 20 million living in poverty, and we have an educational system that leaves more and more low and middle income children behind. We marched to say that families deserve to be supported!
