The 40th March For Life of an estimated group of 500,000 people ended at the Supreme Court building on Friday afternoon. The MSM always downplays the numbers. I saw one site today that didn’t say there were tens of thousands of people marching, much less hundreds of thousands or a half-million, but merely thousands. LifeSiteNews has a number of photograph on flickr, including this one of the March going up to the Supreme Court building.
Yesterday morning Sarah Torres at Heritage Foundation wrote:
It is a simple witness by a tireless pro-life movement over the past 40 years that has reoriented the hearts and minds of an entire generation toward the dignity and worth of every individual—born or yet to be. Despite obstacles, the pro-life movement has achieved notable victories in public opinion, law, and culture….
More than 100 pro-life laws have been passed in states across the country since 2010, including parental notification, informed consent, and abortion clinic regulation legislation. Charmaine Yoest, president and CEO of Americans United for Life, which is leading the legal defense of life, notes: “There is a rising tide across this country of pro-life legislators who are picking up the flag and advancing the defense of life in law.”
