Later today, hundreds of thousands of people will descend on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., for the annual March for Life.
Crowds are expected to exceed last year’s 400,000 participants, to walk a now-familiar route to the steps of the Supreme Court to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision that, along with an accompanying ruling in Doe v. Bolton, legalized abortion-on-demand across the United States.
The official theme of this year’s march is “40 = 55M.” It’s an equation meant to reflect the enormous cost of 40 years under the ethic of Roe: Since the Supreme Court’s decision in 1973, an estimated 55 million abortions have been performed.
