Several hundred thousand people gathered for the National March for Life on the Mall in Washington, DC on January 22, 2009 to mourn the 36th Anniversary of Roe vs. Wade. My husband and I were among them, along with two friends.
It took 1 1/2 hours for all of the Marchers to pass onto Constitution Avenue as they left the Mall on the way to the Supreme Court. That first picture above shows the last of them as they wound their way around the Capitol.
We saw pro-life activists everywhere we looked in DC throughout the week. There were groups of teens and some of the women wearing buttons declaring “I regret my abortion” at our hotel. We shared an elevator with Father Frank Pavonne of Priests for Life on Thursday night.
