New Generation Enters Fight Against Abortion in Washington
From WND Faith
WASHINGTON, D.C. – They came from near and far, across deserts, plains and mountains. They were young, old and middle-aged. Their faces reflected the face of America – white, black, Asian and Hispanic.
Clad in coats, hats and sweaters, they all descended on Washington, D.C. on a chilly, blustery January day. The weather may have been cold, but their enthusiasm seemed to warm the air around them. They were there to celebrate the one thing they shared in common: life.
This was the March for Life, a gathering of pro-life advocates held every year on the anniversary of the Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe v. Wade decision. Hundreds of thousands of passionate demonstrators crowded right into the heart of Washington to voice their opposition to abortion.
The event began with an hour-long rally on the National Mall. A few members of Congress spoke, including Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, R-Wash., and Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C. Folk singer Marie Miller serenaded the crowd. The Rev. Sammy Rodriguez of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference fired up the spectators with his closing remarks.
