Washington D.C., Apr 25, 2004 / 22:00 pm
Only 100,000 to 250,000 people turned out for the pro-abortion march last Sunday in Washingtion D.C. This is a fraction of the predicted one million marchers the organizers had hoped for.
There was no official crowd count, but the Washingtion Police estimated that about 250,000 people were present.
The reported estimates varied according to the sources, with the New York Times estimating some “tens of thousands protesters,” and the Associated Press, who´s pre-march estimate was 750,000, reporting that "tens of thousands of women” were among the no more than 200,000 marchers.
Other media outlets estimated numbers which were far in excess of the police estimate. Reuters reported "hundreds of thousands of protesters" descended on the capital and United Press claimed that 500,000 women attended the march.
