March for Life speakers include Father Mike Schmitz, actor Kirk Cameron

The March for Life Education and Defense Fund announced the speaker lineup for the upcoming 49th annual March for Life on Jan. 21.

Among the speakers at the rally proceeding the march will be actor Kirk Cameron, “Duck Dynasty” star Lisa Robertson, podcast host Father Mike Schmitz, and two members of Congress, along with other pro-life advocates. 

“We are delighted to welcome these incredible speakers to the March for Life,” said Jeanne Mancini, president of March for Life Education and Defense Fund, in a press release published Jan. 11.  

“Americans everywhere know that unborn children deserve equal rights and protection under the law,” she said.

The pre-march rally is set to begin at noon on the National Mall. The March for Life will begin immediately after the rally concludes. 

The theme of this year’s march is “Equality Begins in the Womb,” which organizers say “highlights how true equality is only possible if we recognize that children in the womb also deserve protection.”

Leading the March for Life will be students from Christendom College, a Catholic college in Front Royal, Virginia, and students from Immanuel Lutheran High School in Alexandria, Virginia.

His Eminence, Archbishop Elpidophoros of America, Orthodox Church in the US, will be leading the opening prayer at the rally. Cissie Graham Lynch, of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, is set to deliver the rally’s closing prayer.
