In a rally described as â€œa turning pointâ€ on the abortion issue, hundreds of thousands of pro-life supporters, most of whom were college-age or younger, marched for an end to abortion in the United States.
Many carried signs saying, â€œI am the Pro-Life Generation,â€ and â€œI Survived Roe vs Wade. Roe vs. Wade Will Not Survive Me.â€
â€œI think people just donâ€™t realize how pro-life young adults are now,â€ said Ariana Scecchitano, 21, who came with 400 fellow students from Franciscan University of Steubenville in Ohio.
More than a third of our generation was aborted, said Rueben Verastigui, 19, of the San Antonio (Texas) Coalition for Life, one of the speakers who addressed the rally on the National Mall.
â€œWe will not be silenced,â€ he said. â€œI believe we are the chosen generationâ€ that will abolish abortion and change history.
The March for Life has been held every year since the first anniversary of the 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling that made abortion legal in the United States.
Last yearâ€™s march drew 400,000 persons, and this yearâ€™s turnout was â€œrecord-breaking,â€ said a spokeswoman for the organizers. Participants from California and Arizona, many Midwestern states, and all along the East Coast gathered together under slate-gray skies that eventually gave way to a light snow.
