Pro-lifers brave blizzard at March for Life
January 22, 2016
Tens of thousands of pro-life activists defied freezing temperatures and the approach of a gigantic snowstorm to join in the 43rd March for Life in Washington, DC, on January 22.
The annual march, held on the anniversary of the notorious Roe v. Wade decision that struck down laws against abortion, was held despite predictions that an approaching blizzard would bring two feet of snow to the area. The snow began to fall as the participants marched toward the Supreme Court building.
With airports shutting down and highways quickly becoming impassible, thousands of the pro-lifers who traveled to Washington for the march faced the likelihood that they would be stranded in the city for the weekend-- in many cases without a place to stay. Organizers of the March for Life had urged people to be cautious about traveling to the city in light of the dire forecasts, but had vowed that the march would be held regardless of weather conditions.
