    Surge Summary: A Washington, D.C. vaccine mandate goes into effect mere days before the nation’s largest pro-life event will be held there, creating difficulties for participants. Timing seems suspicious.

    Washington, D.C. mayor Muriel Bowser’s new vaccine mandate has caused the cancellation of at least one event connected to the January 21 National March for Life. Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., said, “We are disgusted by the transparently heavy-handed tactics of the mayor’s office in interfering with the biggest pro-life event in the nation.”

    “It’s hard to believe that the timing of the mandate, which goes into effect several days before the March, is a coincidence. Rather, it looks like a deliberate move by a pro-abortion politician to throw a monkey wrench in a week of pro-life events.”

    The mandate requires those entering indoor spaces (including hotels, restaurants and conference centers) to provide proof of vaccination or obtain an exemption.

    “How could the mayor not know that pro-lifers are among those least likely to be vaccinated, due to concerns that fetal cells were used in the vaccine?” Morse said.

    At the same time, Morse praised Students for Life of America for their perseverance in holding their National Pro-life Summit January 22, despite the new restrictions.

    “We appreciate that Students for Life have not censored or canceled themselves. Rather, these young people will be there, training to stand for life more effectively, in spite of the obstacles placed in their way by people who ought to know better.”

    “If these courageous young people can put themselves on the line and show up despite the difficulties, be assured that the Ruth Institute will stand with them. We will be there with all the materials and messaging that we had planned for the entire week’s worth of activities.”

    “We call on everyone to attend the March for Life and the Students for Life Summit! If you’re at the Summit, please come visit us at the Ruth Institute booth!”
