Just about everyone has likely heard of the internet-famous “Baby Yoda” memes which were inspired by the Star Wars series recent spinoff show, The Mandalorian. The meme made a few unexpected appearances at the March for Life Rally in Washington, D.C., on Friday, according to Mediaite.
The controversial Roe v. Wade decision in 1973 made it legal to obtain an abortion in the United States. Every year since then, pro-life activists have been heading to the nation’s capital for the March for Life, in an attempt to stand up against abortion. This year, a selection of those in attendance held up signs of Baby Yoda in an effort to show their opposition to the procedure.
“Choose Life. You Should,” read the signs of several children in attendance.
The text on the signs, which included drawings of the popular meme, was a reference to Yoda’s distinctive way of speaking.
Another young person’s sign was painted to display the words “Protect the Child. This is the Way” in big block letters, with another picture of Baby Yoda.
Most of the people who attend the March for Life come from all walks of life, backgrounds, and religions, but Christians and conservatives do tend to encompass the majority of those in attendance.
As The Inquisitr previously reported, a sitting United States president attended this year’s March for Life Rally for this first time in its history. Donald Trump took the stand to discuss his stance on abortion and to publicly declare his opinion that life should be protected from birth to natural death. He even went as far as to say that there has been no other force in the White House working so hard toward the pro-life effort.
“They are coming after me because I am fighting for you and we are fighting for those that have no voice, and we will win because we know how to win. Together we are the voice for the voiceless. It is my profound honor to be the first president in history to attend the March for Life. We are here for a very simple reason: to defend the right of every child, born and unborn, to fulfill their God-given potential.”
The president was accompanied by several other White House staff members, including counselor Kellyanne Conway and Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar. The March for Life begins at the White House Ellipse and continues on to the Capitol.
