WASHINGTON, DC, January 23, 2009 - Hundreds of thousands of pro-life activists gathered on the national mall in the nation's capital yesterday standing in the cold on a cloudy day with a slight rain. The weather however did nothing to dampen the spirits of the vast crowd nor the political and spiritual leaders who addressed them prior to the march.
Powerful addresses were made by many leaders and with a prayer and a rousing rendition of America, the march commenced. What would normally be a 15 minute walk took the line of marchers hours to complete.
Fifty across and thousands deep the march was an unbelievable sea of people. Some near the front who had completed the march went for lunch and returned to their hotel rooms only to see thousands of marchers still progressing toward the Supreme Court.
"The largest estimate to date was 350,000. it was just an overwhelming turnout."
