.- Today tens of thousands of people committed to supporting the sanctity of human life rallied on the National Mall in Washington D.C. for the annual March for Life.  The theme for this year’s march is “Build unity on the life principles throughout America – No exception! No compromise!”

In recent years, over 200,000 pro-lifers have congregated in the U.S. capital in protest of Roe v. Wade. Across the nation today, thousands of pro-lifers are gathering in their hometowns to oppose this decision that has claimed the lives of over 48.5 million babies.

This annual event continues to draw an increasing number of young people who have been born since the Supreme Court decision was handed down 35 years ago.

President of the Institute on Religion and Democracy, Jim Tonkowich commended the leadership of the youth:

“Changing the hearts and minds of the culture begins when the young decide to lead. In a country where the young are known for their lack of involvement in voting and political causes, the Pro-Life movement stands as a strong exception.

“It is amazing that the realities of abortion, which are so muddled with the older generation, are increasingly seen with a striking clarity by young men and women.”
