7 Things We Saw At The March For Life In Washington DC

Thousands of pro-lifers descended upon Washington DC Friday afternoon to march in the 45th annual March For Life, which occurs on or near the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that nationalized legal abortion. We went to check it out. Here are some of the things we saw.

1. Donald Trump

President Trump addressed the marchers via satellite from the White House Rose Garden. He was the first sitting president to ever directly address the march.

We were there to watch.

2. The Veep

Vice President Pence addressed the crowds, too.

4. A Marching Band

Students from a Catholic, all-boys, African-American school in New Orleans were on a multi-city field trip retracing the Underground Railroad. Their journey ended at the March for Life, because, as Father Tony Ricard told me, they want the students to learn about their responsibility to fight for the lives of others.

6. Latinos Por La Vida

7. Former Abortion Clinic Employees

Shelley Guillory, who worked as a nurse at an abortion facility in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, says she took the job not knowing they performed abortions. Two weeks into the job, when she came to work, the furniture was rearranged and there were canisters everywhere, at which point they informed her that it was “procedure day.”

After Guillory’s 20-year-old son died in 2013, she took three months off work. When she went back to work, a friendly sidewalk counselor her gave her Abby Johnson’s card. Johnson runs an organization that empowers abortion-industry employees to leave the industry. She says Johnson helped her to leave in 2013. She now counsels teens who have had abortions and works with them “through these scars.”

If you or someone you know is working in the abortion industry and seeking resources to find a new career, go here.
