Pro-lifers with the organization Secular Pro-Life are no strangers to the March for Life, as the group has had representatives present at the D.C. March for Life since 2009.

But with many pro-lifers having religious convictions that drive their stance on the abortion issue, Secular Pro-Life exists to remind the world that it doesn't take faith to believe that killing an unborn child is wrong.

"It's just like any other human rights issue from the premise that all human beings are deserving of equal rights and are equal. We believe in non-discrimination and equality and those are the tenants of the pro-life movement. None of these have anything to do with religion," Secular Pro-Life member Terrisa Bukovinac, who traveled from San Francisco, told CP.

"We see movements like the civil rights movement, which was clearly a Christian movement with Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference," she noted. "Yet secularism embraced racial equality as we should have. Recognizing the humanity of marginalized groups doesn't take any kind of religion."
