Faithwire asked a number of participants in Friday’s March for Life what it truly means to be “pro-life,” and we received a range of perspectives — responses that indicated that the label extends well beyond opposition to abortion.
Explaining that being pro-life means valuing life “womb to tomb,” the participants offered up a variety of intriguing definitions for the term, which has, politically speaking, been most associated with the nation’s abortion debate.

“Recognizing each person’s potential for life,” one marcher offered up. Another added that pro-life means, “A commitment to nonviolence … towards those who are incapable of defending themselves.”
Some provided a clear distinction in framing the definition, affirming that, while abortion is a pro-life concern, the definition extends well beyond that paradigm.
“It’s about all life … from conception to natural death,” another marcher proclaimed.
