The 29 Most Lit Signs at the 2017 March for Life

On Friday January 27, well over half a million gathered in Washington to commemorate 44 years since Roe v. Wade made abortion legal nationwide. (2013 was 650,000 and regulars kept telling me this was the biggest crowd ever.)

Many people held printed signs with phrases like “I Am the Pro-Life Generation,” “Stop Abortion Now,” or “[Organization or Church] Supports Life.” But what always impresses me are the handwritten signs that show a personal conviction.

I spent much of the March taking pictures of homemade signs and posting them to Twitter. The morning after, I went through and found the best of those signs for this story.

Here are 29 that I think are totally LIT! Click any for full resolution.

  2. Every picture is run through an HDR filter.
  3. You can reuse these pictures on a few conditions: you give me credit (@FrMatthewLC or Fr Matthew P. Schneider, LC), send me a link via social media, and if you want to sell it or use it for advertisement ask me 1st as I want a cut.

    1. Wow, yeah, I watched Dr. Who from the 60s (am from Ireland) and I didn’t get it straight off but… cool! Of course, there’s only one Time Lord! God bless you, Fr. Schneider. We’ll have our March in Dublin in July. Pray for us, as we do for you. You in the pro-life movement in the U.S. give us so much encouragement.

  1. That kid holding the sign “Babies are a gift from god” looks like the spawn of the devil. Thank god abortion is legal.
