The March for Life demonstration and march is slated to be held in Washington, DC, on Friday, January 18, to denounce abortion access laws. A rally will take place at the National Mall at 12th Street beginning at 12:00 (local time), and will be followed by a march from 13:00 down Constitution Avenue NW to the Capitol and Supreme Court buildings on First Street. Counterdemonstrations are likely in the vicinity of March for Life events. A heightened security presence and localized transportation disruptions are to be expected.
The March for Life coincides with the anniversary of the Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade decision in 1973, which ruled on the constitutionality of laws that restricted access to or criminalized abortions.
Individuals in Washington, DC, are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all demonstrations as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.
