Decked out in red, white, and blue with an American flag draped around his shoulders, L.K. has dubbed himself “Patriot Man.”
At 71 years old, L.K. told Faithwire during last week’s March for Life in Washington, D.C., that he has been advocating the pro-life cause ever since his youngest of three sons was born three months premature, weighing a mere 2 pounds and half an ounce.

“I prayed to God that, if he would live, I would fight for every unborn baby for the rest of my life,” L.K. told Faithwire, fighting back tears as he marched along Constitution Avenue on the way to the U.S. Supreme Court building in our nation’s capital.
He went on to describe his character — “Patriot Man” — and the beliefs that inspire him:
I don’t have powers like Super Man. I couldn’t jump a building if I had to. But I believe in life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Without life, the other two are not possible.
I just believe we were given the Constitution for rights for all people, and these babies are people — they’re persons, not things. They need to be protected, and it’s time for all of us to stand up, as Americans, with our vote, and decide, if someone is for murdering babies, do not put them in office. Remove them from office. That’s a dealbreaker with me.
The father of three ended by telling us “Patriot Man” is dedicated to the principles of “God, family, country, truth, justice, and America.”
Faithwire caught up with several other marchers during the D.C. event, which drew an estimated 50,000 people from all across the country and even the world.
In addition to “Patriot Man,” Faithwire spoke with a teenager from Argentina and a group of young adults from Canada, each of whom is passionate enough about the cause of life to join the rally in Washington.
One Canadian demonstrator told Faithwire they are “so inspired by the fervor here … and we’re ready to go” back to Canada to advocate for life in their home country.
A high school student from Argentina currently living in Ohio told Faithwire she has participated in many pro-life demonstrations in her country but had never — until last week — been part of a March for Life in the United States.
The young woman, who goes by Millie, said she feels very passionately about the pro-life cause, particularly on the heels of Argentina’s legalization of abortion in December 2020.
“We came here because it’s something very important,” she said of fighting for life. “So we’re just trying to keep on fighting so everything starts to get better.”
It’s clear many people feel the same way as Millie, and they made their voices heard last week. If you missed it, you can watch our full livestream below:
