In a powerful speech delivered January 20th at the 50th annual March For Life Rally, Mark Roepke, a man conceived in rape, shared the story of his life and conception.
Raised by a loving Christian family, he expressed gratitude for the upbringing gifted to him.
Mark learned what abortion was after asking his father as a young child. Shaken by it, he emotionally expressed: “To know that people were killing their children because they were inconvenient horrified me.”
