Today it is estimated that well over half a million people gathered in Washington D.C. at the annual March for Life. In the snowy 20 degree weather, pro-lifers marched through terrible weather conditions showing the world the power of truth. I was one of them. It was my first time attending the March for Life in D.C. and it was an awesome experience. I could not even estimate the massive number of people because they just kept coming. It was so cool!
Throughout the day, I saw very few protesters (aka abortion supporters). As we came out of mass before the March, one man chanted “women’s rights”. As we marched, there were two people with a sign about communion who weren’t really doing much. Outside the supreme court there were maybe 10 people holding “abortion on demand & without apology” posters. I didn’t see any other protesters which was a huge difference from my experience at the Walk for Life last year.
Another huge difference was the weather. It was around 20 degrees in D.C. today and it snowed as we marched. The snow was rather beautiful, but it was otherwise a pitiful and gloomy day. Good thing we were there to light up the city!
Usually the media ignores pro-lifers (unless they find the occasional violent one), but I am pleased to find that this year there are several somewhat-fair articles out. Here’s a round-up of the news stories and pictures I’ve found:
The Washington Post – March for Life in front of Supreme Court decries landmark 1973 ruling
Hiffington Post – The Real, Global March for Life
Our movement is a movement of joy and love. It’s time to join the revolution!
