A million people worldwide participated in the Women’s March the day after the inauguration of US President Donald Trump in defense of women’s rights and gender equity.

Even though pro-life groups were banned from joining in, this has not silenced the voices of those who will join the March for Life in downtown Atlanta Monday.

Thousands of pro-life supporters are expected to take part in the annual event, sponsored by Georgia Right to Life (GRTL), beginning at 11 a.m. at Liberty Plaza, located on Capitol Avenue across the street from the State Capitol.

“Our society continues to show an almost total disregard for the value of human life,” said GRTL Executive Director Zemmie Fleck. “We’ve lost over 60 million children to abortion and there’s a growing lack of compassion for the elderly, the disabled, and the infirm.”

March for Life, a bold demonstration which gives voice to an issue that concerns millions of pro-lifers worldwide, has been marginalized and alienated by the organizers of the Women’s March, which was said to be inclusive.

Omarosa Manigault, assistant to President Trump and director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison, stopped by “Fox & Friends” last week and slammed the Women’s March for excluding pro-life groups.

“If you don’t share their views or i.e. if you’re not a Democrat, then they don’t want you to take part in this march,” she said. “And these women, if you aren’t sharing their views, don’t come march, don’t come lend your voice. It is not representative of what this country is all about.”

Fleck added, “This tragedy will continue unless people of conscience say enough is enough. It’s a sad commentary on our culture that we are more concerned about abandoned animals than we are for the most vulnerable humans among us.”

Mike Griffin, Public Affairs Director for the Georgia Baptist Convention and senior pastor of Liberty Baptist Church in Hartwell, will serve as master of ceremonies.
