Every year thousands of men, women, college students, children, and babies gather in Washington D.C. for the March for Life, marking the anniversary of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision. Here is what we saw at this year’s march.

Today, students from the Diocese of Springfield and throughout the 13th district will join thousands from across the country in Washington to march for life. I am proud of these students and I will continue to stand up for life and protect those who cannot speak for themselves. pic.twitter.com/PE1Cgu5e2p

5. Center for Medical Progress Founder David Daleiden
Thursday evening the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that Daleiden’s undercover videos of Planned Parenthood were authentic, accurate, and could be used to justify removing taxpayer funding from the abortion provider.
6. Men Marching for Women and Children
William from Braintree, Massachusetts said he coordinated with his diocese to help a new church in Rhode Island make congregants’ first trip to the March for Life.
“Men need to take a more responsible role in the household,” he said. “We are very responsible for all the unborn children in this world…it’s just as much [men’s] responsibility as everyone else’s to help end abortion.”
