With Roe vs Wade on the way out, the Texas Heartbeat Law in effect, and Planned Parenthood resuming abortions in El Paso just days before Christmas, there has never been a more critical year to attend the Southwest March for Life!
Mayra Rodriguez is the former director of three Planned Parenthood clinics in Arizona, was Planned Parenthood’s 2016 ‘Employee of the Year’, and is a courageous whistleblower who won a 2019 lawsuit against Planned Parenthood and an award of $3M in damages. Her mission now is to make abortion unthinkable; to advocate for women and to expose the truth of Planned Parenthood’s treatment of women and what Planned Parenthood doesn’t want you to know about the dangers of abortion and contraceptive use. As a former undocumented immigrant, Mayra also exposes the truth that Planned Parenthood is anti-immigrant, exploiting both employees and patients with fears of deportation and economic anxiety.
The right to life is a human right. Our defense of that right is a joyful witness to the beauty and dignity of every human person. The Southwest March for Life is an inspiring, peaceful, vibrant, and joy-filled rally of women, men, young people, and children from all across the Borderland. Every year, thousands of pro-lifers unite and march on the anniversary of the Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling which legalized abortion in all 50 states. But this is not just a protest… TOGETHER, WE GATHER TO CELEBRATE LIFE. We celebrate each and every life, from the moment of conception. We envision a world where every life is celebrated, valued, and protected.
Join us at noon for Song & Praise and booths from local pro-life organizations and ministries, followed by a pro-life sermon from Pastor Robert Dominguez of Jesus Chapel in El Paso.
Rally & Speaker
Hear from Fr. Mark Salas of Our Lady of Assumption Parish explaining our theme Equality Begins in the Womb, followed by keynote speaker and Planned Parenthood whistleblower MAYRA RODRIGUEZ, who will share her testimony in both English and Spanish!
March past Planned Parenthood
Join hundreds of local pro-lifers just like yourself in taking a stand to be a voice for the voiceless as we pray and march past the Planned Parenthood abortion facility in El Paso which tragically resumed abortions up to 6 weeks just days before Christmas.
We will loop back to Houston Park to announce the prizes for the best homemade signs, followed by a Rosary led by Fr. Kevin O'Neill, FSSP, from Immaculate Conception Church, and then Mass on-site with El Paso Bishop Mark Seitz!
Prizes for best homemade signs & the three largest church groups!!
