Washington D.C., Jan 24, 2020 / 13:00 pm
A crowd estimated in at least the tens of thousands flooded the National Mall for the March for Life on Friday.
The annual gathering draws pro-life advocates from all over the U.S. and foreign countries to Washington, D.C., marking the anniversary of the Supreme Court's Jan. 22, 1973 decision that legalized abortion.
The march was kicked off by a rally on the National Mall attended by thousands, where President Donald Trump became the first U.S. president to address the March for Life. He did so while Democratic House trial managers were making the case for his impeachment in the U.S. Senate.
"Unborn children have never had a stronger defender in the White House," Trump said. "Every life brings love into this world. Every child brings joy to a family. Every person is worth protecting."
