Colorado Right to Life shifts the focus of its annual March for Life to March for Abolition this year, joining a growing movement across the nation to put the focus on ending abortion rather than celebrating life.
“The goal is actually to abolish abortion, end abortion, not just to celebrate life,” group spokesman Bob Enyart said. “When that’s the goal, when your focus is brought back to the goal, you better evaluate your progress.”
The march, which runs from 10 a.m. to noon Jan. 20, is the same day as Denver’s Women’s March.
Organizers moved the March for Abolition from its traditional location at the Capitol to the Planned Parenthood location at 38th Avenue and Potomac Street in Stapleton.
Following the march, a contingent will head to the west steps of the Capitol, hoping to talk and pray with people who are attending the rally for the Women’s March, Enyart said.
He said it was hard to predict how many people would attend the march. Thousands attended last year’s march in downtown Denver.
