.- Thousands of demonstrators will gather for the annual March for Life rally in Washington, D.C., today with the goal of having the Roe vs Wade decision, which legalized abortion in the United States 31 years ago, overturned.

"This March for Life is … an annual reminder to all of Washington officialdom that it must overturn the Supreme Court's infamous Roe vs Wade decision,” said Nellie Gray, president of March for Life Fund.

Roe vs Wade, she said, unleashed the “the feminists/abortionists' evil agenda of 'choice' to kill preborn humans” and began the slippery slope to decriminalize infanticide, euthanasia, assisted suicide and fetal research.

“We are calling for Americans to come together on goals and strategies to overturn Roe vs Wade, by following the guidance of the Life Principles,” she said. This notion was worked into theme of this year’s march, which is Build Unity on the Life Principles.

She explained: “This means providing Constitutional protection for the unalienable right to life of each human in existence at fertilization. …. Murder is not a feminist/abortionist's right of 'privacy'.".

President George W. Bush is expected to address the rally by telephone. Several members of Congress will speak at the rally as well.

An estimated 4,000 preborns are aborted each day in the United States, and an estimated 42,000,000 preborn U.S. babies were aborted since Roe vs Wade.
