It’s up to young people to ‘end the scourge of abortion,’ says speaker

On a chilly and cloudy morning on the National Mall in Washington D.C., crowds gathered on 22 January for the annual March for Life, this year marking the 42nd anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision legalising abortion virtually on demand.

Tens of thousands gathered first to hear a lineup of speakers, before marching from the Mall up Constitution Avenue to the U.S. Supreme Court building on Capitol Hill.

Early in the day, Pope Francis showed his support of the pro-life gathering by tweeting the theme: ‘Every Life is a Gift’ with the hashtag #marchforlife.

By late morning, the temperature had reached about 40 degrees, warmer than many a previous march, and a music group opened the rally with the songs To Be Loved and You’re Not Alone. The music was upbeat with lively mandolin licks and the powerful voice of the lead singer.     [Full Story]
