This is “who” we will be marching for at March for Life

By Contributor Tracy Bua Smith

Anti-abortion groups in the United States will mark Sunday, January 22 as the 39th anniversary of the Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court decision, which paved the way for legalized abortion in the U.S.

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!

Read this post of our family’s experience at last year’s March for Life posted on my personal blog, A Slice of Smith Life here.

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

  1. I like the sign featuring the Mother Theresa quote about violence with the roses.
