PRO-LIFERS AT ANNUAL MARCH
JANUARY 21, 2023 BY SD 
A new enthusiasm for saving lives filled the March for Life on Friday in Washington, D.C. where a huge crowd gathered to celebrate the end of _Roe v. Wade_. This January marked the 50th year since the U.S. Supreme Court ruled on _Roe_ and forced states to legalize the killing of unborn babies in abortions. In June, however, the high court reversed its infamous decision and began allowing states to protect unborn babies’ lives again. Reflecting on this year’s historic march, Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life, said the pro-life movement has huge new opportunities to protect innocent human lives through education and legislation.
“As tens of thousands march today to remember _Roe_ and the loss of life since 1973, we praise the work of pro-life people who give of their time, energy, and finances to help women facing an unexpected pregnancy. Those efforts have saved millions of lives and, post-_Dobbs_, will save millions more,” Tobias said.
The AP and others noticed the enthusiasm in the crowd, which included many high school and college students and families with young children.
