Hundreds of thousands of people in the March for Life surging toward the Supreme Court.
I participated on Friday, January 18th in the 46th annual March for Life in Washington, DC. This year's March, commemorated the infamous 1973 Supreme Court abortion decisions that imposed abortion on demand in the United States and the over sixty million abortions occurring since then.
The theme of this year's March focuses on the solid scientific basis for recognizing the uniqueness and dignity of every human life starting at conception, and how this compels us to advocate for protecting every life from the violence of abortion, here is the pertinent link.
The lead up to the March began the day before when I attended the very informative Law of Life Summit at the Renaissance Hotel, the headquarters for March activities. Thursday, evening I attended the National Prayer Vigil for Life Mass, as prayer is the power behind our prolife efforts.
The morning of the March began with the ProLifeCon social media conference which featured some leading figures in Congress and the prolife movement.
The March rally on the muddy lawn of the National Mall featured Vice President and Mrs. Pence on stage, who in turn introduced President Trump's video address to the crowd. I left the Rally area early to position myself ahead of the March to take pictures enroute to the Supreme Court, a few of which are included below. My day ended with a stop at DC's iconic Irish pub, the Dubliner, before catching the Metro home.
