Holding banners reading “choose adoption, choose life” and “I am the Pro-Life generation”, tens of thousands of people recently descended on the National Mall in Washington for the annual March for Life demonstration.
The protest marks the anniversary of the Supreme Court decision of January 1973 that legalised abortion in the US.
