Of course it’s a more youthful crowd. Imagine 500,000 people who know that their mother chose life, and who chose to demonstrate their convictions in 20 degree weather! They are the hope of the future of our country.
Of course the so-called news media will not show video or still photos that illustrate the vastness of the crowd! More people than attended the inauguration at the beginning of the week.
"The God who gave us life, gave us liberty at the same time: the hand of force may destroy, but cannot disjoin them." - Thomas Jefferson

Those "young people" are their messengers to arouse and enlighten present generations to the "self-evident" truth understood by the founding generation--that the Declaration's line asserting that "all men are Created equal" is a line of substance and meaning, not one of rhetorical flourish, to be used by those who would subvert its meaning. That premise, in 1776, included an acknowledgement of "the laws of nature and of nature's God," identified by Blackstone as "Creator's law."
1973 represents a world view held by those who rejected the superiority of "Creator's law" (Blackstone), claiming, instead, some implied "constitutional" human law which elevates and offers preferential rights of one segment of one class of citizens ("progressive" women) over all others, including the unborn and their Creator.
In the words of Weaver, "Ideas have consequences."
Often overlooked by the defenders of abortion rights is the reality that one abortion does not equal one life not lived. Rather, one abortion equals the extinction of the lives of all descendants whose lives may have blessed the world. Any genealogist can affirm that fact--which is one consequence which never seems to enter the debate.
I'd mention, too that the first picture in this thread shows part of the contringent of hundreds of Notre Dame students who travelled to Washington to lead the march. May Our Mother inspire many more there to follow them~
