|In the bottom left hand corner of the above photo the text reads “2008 “March for Life”, Washington, D.C., Estimated 400, 000 – 500, 000 in attendance|
To voice opposition to abortion, an estimated 400,000 – 500,000 will come together from all walks of life, all ages, all religions, all races to march prayerfully and peacefully in front of our nation’s capitol to defend life and uphold the dignity of life in all its stages.
My family participated for the first time in this March for Life in Washington, D.C. last year on Monday, January 24, 2011. There were an endless sea of people marching for life, but our media will not talk much about this annual event.
I remember last year I looked to see if our local and national news stations had a story on the march, and I didn’t see one. What a shame!
This year on Monday, January, 23, 2012, my daughter and I are making the trip to D.C. again with friends. We are looking forward to standing for life with so many others!

Below is a slideshow of photos we took of some the signs in the crowd.
