The Diocese of Lincoln sent more than 200 young people to Washington, D.C., to stand up for the unborn, and they believe they are part of a growing trend of pro-life sentiment.
CNA spoke to some of these students outside of the capitol to see what motivated them to embark on a daylong journey to the nation's capital. The group was meeting with pro-life Rep. Jeff Fortenberry (R-NE), who represents their district.
Earlier that day, Fortenberry had given a floor speech where he said that "women deserve better" than abortion, and that "no matter how hard the circumstances," human life is a gift.
The students largely expressed excitement about being in a crowd of young people from across the country. The March for Life drew an estimated crowd of 100,000, many of whom were college-age or younger.
