Anti-Abortion Activists Claim DC Mayor Timed Start Of Vax Mandate To Ruin Their Annual March Against Roe

The Christian Post reports:

The 49th annual March for Life is scheduled to take place on Jan. 21, six days after a vaccine mandate is set to take effect in Washington, D.C., where the march is held. The mandate will require those seeking to enter “restaurants, bars and nightclub establishments,” “indoor entertainment establishments,” and “indoor event and meeting establishments” to provide proof of having received at least one dose of the coronavirus vaccine beginning Jan. 15.

Pro-life activists allege that the vaccine mandate’s scheduled implementation days before the March for Life was not merely a coincidence. Students for Life of America President Kristan Hawkins [photo] suggested in a Facebook post that “The mayor of Washington, D.C., is doing everything possible to make the pro-life movement cancel our events surrounding the 49th anniversary of Roe.”
