American Life League Upholds No Exceptions as Only Response to Abortion

(January 16, 2023 – Fredericksburg, Virginia) American Life League will be advocating for a no exceptions approach to abortion in the nation’s capital on January 20, 2023. As they have since the movement’s beginning, the American Life League will again remind life-advocates at the 50th annual March for Life, the first in a post-Roe America, that every abortion takes a human life.

“A great influence on my pro-life work was attorney, pro-life leader, and founder of the March for Life, Ms. Nellie J. Gray,” shared American Life League President Judie Brown. “Nellie Gray understood that you cannot fight abortion halfway, you must condemn it universally.”

Though Gray passed away in 2012, her legacy lives on in the annual gathering of hundreds of thousands who descend on Washington, D.C. to advocate for life and decry abortion.

As pro-life advocates continue boldly marching in defense of the unborn and as life affirming state lawmakers focus on crafting legislation to protect the preborn, American Life League issues a reminder that a no exceptions policy is the only way to respond to abortion.

Many life proponents push for abortion restrictions with “heartbeat” laws and demand protections for viable babies, but Brown and the American Life League call for an end to all abortions, without exception.

That sentiment is carried by many March for Life participants as they parade along the streets between the Washington Monument and the United States Supreme Court. One iconic placard, featured at the event for decades, bears the phrase, “Face it…Abortion Kills,” alongside the face of a young baby, one of Judie Brown’s grandchildren.

American Life League will host an informational booth at the March for Life Expo, January 18 through 20, 2023, at the Renaissance D.C. Downtown Hotel. Details on the 2023 March for Life and Expo are available at
