(ChurchLeaders) March for Life 2021 looked a bit different than it has in years past. Instead of the throngs of supporters marching around Capitol Hill this year, the group’s presence in Washington D.C. was scaled back considerably. In lieu of addressing a big crowd from a stage in the United States Capital, this year’s speakers shared their insights virtually from their own offices and homes throughout the nation.
Another notable difference between this year’s march and last year’s was the absence of representation from the current presidential administration. The Trump administration honored the March for Life by participating in each march over their four years in office. Starting in 2017, Vice President Mike Pence joined the group and then made visits in the years following. President Trump made headlines last year when he showed up in person to encourage the crowd and tout his pro-life record.
