A sea of people holding banners and signs proclaiming the sanctity of life from conception to national death filled the National Mall on Friday for the annual March for Life — an event that has taken place annually since the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court Roe v. Wade decision making abortion legal across the land.

Jeanne Mancini, president of March for Life, said from the stage that the country was “forever changed” by Roe v. Wade.

“Since that time, we have tragically lost over 60 million American children, little girls, and little boys, to abortion,” Mancini said. “And many mothers and fathers regret having been involved in abortion.”

“We’re marching to end the human rights abuse of our time, abortion,” Mancini said. “That’s why we march.”

President Donald Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, and members of the House and Senate pro-life caucuses spoke at the event, Trump via video.
