As a young woman living in Washington, D.C., I could easily attend the Women’s March on Saturday if I wanted to. Except that I am not invited, because I am pro-life. As the organizers of the march made clear in a statement, the Women’s March’s on Washington “platform is pro-choice” and “has been since day one.”

The march might as well have renamed itself “The March for Abortion.” Then it would have cleared up any confusion about pretending to represent all women, when almost half of us self-identify as pro-life and would probably feel more at home at the March for Life, set to take place the following week. The March for Life is open to women of all political stripes and will include groups like Democrats for Life of America.
