.- Tens of thousands of pro-lifers marched on Washington yesterday to mark the 32nd anniversary of Roe vs. Wade and to let government know they want an end to abortion. The demonstrators, gathered on the Ellipse yesterday, were buoyed by the support of President George W. Bush. The president addressed the crowd by telephone from Camp David, Md., telling them: “This movement will not fail.” He said their approach to the debate this year would "change hearts and minds" of those still favoring abortion rights.

"This is the path of the culture of life that we seek for our country," he said.

Pro-lifers believe that Bush’s re-election is evidence that the Supreme Court and its pro-abortion stance is out of step with the American public and that Roe vs. Wade should be overturned. 

The pro-life demonstration takes place every year on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion in the United States. Demonstrations were also held throughout the country over the weekend, Jan. 22, on the actual anniversary of the court decision.
