March for Life turns 30

.- Religious leaders of all faiths, elected officials, leaders of right-to-life organizations and pro-lifers from across the country will assemble in the nation’s capitol for the annual March For Life, tomorrow, which this year will turn 30.

It has been thirty years since the March For Life began. The march was initially held in Jan. 22, 1974, on the first anniversary of the infamous Supreme Court Roe vs. Wade decision.

Norma McCorvey, who was Jane Roe, had signed the affidavit that was sent to the Supreme Court in 1973. McCorvey is now a pro-life speaker with "Roe No More" Ministries, a convert to Catholicism, and march supporter.

The march will begin with a rally at noon in the Ellipse, behind the White House, followed by a walk up Constitution Avenue and ending at the Supreme Court Building. Marchers will show support for the right to life and for pro-life legislation designed to reverse the Roe vs. Wade decision.
