Over half a million are expected to participate in this year’s March For Life.  I will update this post as news of the event comes in.  Stay tuned

Update *  6PM EDT

Nearly a million marchers braved the cold in our nation’s capital for the 42nd annual March for Life. The march was founded to call attention to the evils of abortion and protest the Supreme Court’s decision of Roe v. Wade that made abortion legal and on demand in the nation. Since this case, generations of children have been killed in order to make the lives of those who sought abortion more “convenient.”

On this same day, Republicans tried to pass bills restricting abortion.  However, president Obama has vowed to veto any bills that restrict abortion. Nevertheless, the attempt to pass the bills served the purpose to give publicity to the pro-life cause and send the message that it is not going away.

The march today went well but was disrupted near the Supreme Court by pro-abortion advocates who blocked the road and harassed pro-life marchers. Some of these hecklers were arrested for “crowding, obstructing and incommoding.” Some officers refused  to remove the hecklers.  One pro-life marched ask an officer, “isn’t it about time you cleared this road? He replied, “That’s way above my pay grade.”

As usual, the presence of young pro-life marchers was evidence. The Verizon Center was filled to capacity with young people, including seminarians, postulants, novices and aspirants to the priesthood.
