  1. We need to have a good turnout for this March for Life. If we truly believe that we do not want Prop 5 to pass into law, we must make our presence known that there are many people who are against it. Lawmakers are going to assume that voters are not against this legislation if they do not show up or do not voice their opposition to this law. Even people who are actually against the law might think that they are fighting a losing battle if enough people (voters) do not stand up for their opposition to Prop 5. Studies and surveys have shown that more people are against abortion than pro-abortion, despite what the media and some legislators try to convey. We must prove that there are more Pro-Life people that Pro-abortion people. Let’s get out there and show our Pro-Life numbers.!!!
