This month, America memorializes the millions and millions of innocent lives lost to abortion since January 22, 1973.

We also remember the many mothers ? and fathers ? whose lives have been devastated by abortion in the 44 years since the U.S. Supreme Court imposed abortion on all 50 states through the brutally unjust Roe v. Wade decision.

40 Days for Life vigils allow us to be public witnesses for life by praying for an end to abortion in small groups, on the sidewalks outside abortion centers.

Over the next week or so, we have the opportunity to be public witnesses for life in groups of tens -- or even hundreds -- of thousands!

There are events, large and small, from coast to coast across America. If you're already planning on attending one -- great!

If you're still thinking about it, watch this quick video offering the three best reasons to take part in one of these marches!

Please do three things right now ...

1. Watch the short video above.

2. Share it with others ... by forwarding this page, by posting on social media ? using the hashtag #WhyWeMarch ? and any other way you can.

3. If you'll be at the big events such as the March for Life in Washington, DC on January 27, or the Walk for Life West Coast in San Francisco on January 21, plan to meet up with our 40 Days for Life headquarters team.

Let's use this time to help make abortion history!
