Thousands of Anti-Abortion Campaigners March in DC on Anniversary of Roe v. Wade Decision

Supreme Court's landmark decision was made in 1973


Friars and nuns in woolen winter capes and thousands of fellow Catholics rallied Wednesday in frigid temperatures and slippery snow at the annual March for Life.

The world's largest antiabortion event, held on the anniversary of the Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade decision, grows younger each year. The Mall between Seventh Street and the Washington Monument was full for a few hours with youth groups from across the eastern half of the country.

  1. Roe versus Wade was the turning point in our country. And
    that was a point in which the nation opened the door for evil to infiltrate.

    A fetus heartbeat starts in a matter of weeks for the pregnant
    woman. And the woman doesn’t know she is pregnant until after the heartbeat has begun. It is a scientific fact. The heartbeat is there. And we gave license to end it.

    It is not just a matter of the issue being a woman’s body.It is two heartbeats. She no longer has the right to end one unless she is in physical danger herself. There are no other “what if” scenarios. The heartbeat trumps all.

    The results of this mindset that started with Roe vs Wade? A
    generation that has been brought up on the long acceptance of Roe vs Wade and all the other Progressive agendas? Well here it is. The youth is opening fire.Newtown, CT. Colorado. New Mexico. Philly. And yesterday Purdue. You have created a generation of monsters.
    They are amoral.I don’t have to prove my point. Newtown proved it for me. Expect more. There is one antidote to the poison you have swallowed. And that is a return to decency. Not in a religious sense–just a pragmatic decency. And if we aren’t going to return to basic moral values then we can expect only more destruction as our nation plummets.
