Close to a Million Will March for Life in D.C. Today – but Will the Media Even Notice?



Today, January 22, 2015, is the 42nd anniversary of the 1973 Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade. Close to a million pro-lifers will take to the streets of D.C. on this day for the annual March for Life, but see if it gets any network coverage (spoiler alert: it won’t).

The march begins with a rally on the National Mall, then proceeds to the steps of the Supreme Court where women who regret their abortions provide testimony, then marchers lobby their representatives to protect the lives of the unborn.

Along with its companion case, Doe v. Bolton, Roe legalized abortion through all 9 months of pregnancy for pretty much any reason because of a broad definition of “health” that includes “physical, emotional, psychological, familial, and the woman’s age.”

Since that disastrous decision made by seven men in black robes, 57,762,169 babies have been aborted in the United States. That means that the equivalent of the total combined populations of California and New York have been wiped from the face of the earth!

But the good news is that abortion rates are on the decline, from a high of 1/3 babies aborted to fewer than 1/5, thanks in large part to an increase in pro-life laws and a younger generation that is pro-life.

Abortion has been legal in this country 42 years too long, but we WILL see the day when abortion is abolished in America!
