Hundreds of thousands of women marched in the streets of Washington D.C., on Saturday in an event dubbed “The Women’s March on Washington.” Millions more marched in other major cities in the U.S. and across the world in solidarity.
The event was marketed at an event protesting President Donald Trump while advocating for equal rights for all women.
However, the group who organized the march found themselves in controversy over recent weeks after pro-life groups were not allowed to march with the rest of the women. Pro-lifers argued that the event was not about celebrating women or advocating women’s rights at all. Instead, they said the event was organized only to push progressive values — including abortion.
Marchers’ attitude toward pro-lifers on Saturday during the march further proved that the event was not at all about celebrating the rights of all women — including unborn babies.
But if you saw the promo video for the march, you wouldn’t know that.
In a promo video posted to the Women’s March Facebook page last week, titled, “#WhyIMarch,” women explained the reasons they were marching on Saturday.
“Because I want to feel safe at school,” one girl explains.
“Because I’m a feminist,” adds a man.
“Because my life matters,” says another woman.
Then the glaring hypocrisy of the entire event is revealed when one of the women featured in the video points to her pregnant belly, which holds her unborn daughter, to proclaim that the unborn child’s life matters, too.
But remember? The event banished pro-life groups from marching and only accepted pro-abortion groups, yet they claim in their video promoting their event that unborn lives matter. The hypocrisy couldn’t be more glaring.
