Pro-life groups banned from Women's March on Washington on January 21

Organizers of the Women's March on Washington are receiving flak from pro-life women activists, who, apparently, were not invited to the event. Some of these organizations reportedly applied to be organizing partners, but they never received a response.

The Women's March on Washington, which will be held on Saturday, Jan. 21, a day after President-elect Donald Trump's inauguration, fashions itself as an inclusive rally meant to bring attention to the importance of women's rights.

"The Women's March on Washington will send a bold message to our new government on their first day in office, and to the world that women's rights are human rights. We stand together, recognizing that defending the most marginalized among us is defending all of us," the March's website indicates.

While the event has not officially declared itself as pro-choice, its partners include organizations that are widely known to advocate and promote pro-choice principles. These include Planned Parenthood, the National Organization for Women, the Center for Reproductive Rights, and NARAL Pro-Choice America.

Pro-life groups like the Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) and Feminists for Life shared with The Christian Post that they were not contacted by the Women's March on Washington organizers.
