March for Life News Coverage

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.

The protesters from this year – ooooooooh scary!
Here they are among us pro-lifers

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:

CNN – Santorum, Rand Paul lead abortion opposition March for Life

NYT – 40 Years After Roe v. Wade, Thousands March to Oppose Abortion

USA Today – March for Life draws ardent protest against abortion

USA Today – Pope sends support to abortion protesters in Washington

The Washington Post – March for Life in front of Supreme Court decries landmark 1973 ruling

 Hiffington Post – The Real, Global March for Life

 WTOP – 40th annual March for Life will draw crowd to Mall

Our movement is a movement of joy and love. It’s time to join the revolution!
