Today, tens of thousands of people from around the country will gather in Washington to brave the cold for a cause they believe in. Some are marching for the first time, and others have been traveling to the nation’s capital since the Roe v. Wade decision in 1973. For the 41st year, they’ll meet again for the same reason — the sanctity of life.

We’re also celebrating life today, and we hope you will, too. Here are 19 moving reminders of the beauty of new life:

There are a ton of beautiful photos on facebook and twitter. I’ve been other years just couldn’t make myself do it this year with the sub-freezing temperatures. God bless those who did!

I was told by my SIL that there were about 1500 children there... cold and bitter weather but thousands of warm hearts. I have a niece and nephew there... in a high school class from a Catholic school. I will let you know more when I hear more.

I am with you 100%. We must stand up for the most innocent amongst us as JESUS commanded us to. It is also the very basic foundational right we are granted by GOD’s gift of this republic.When our Founders set forth to declare our Independence from King George, the second sentence they put to paper read:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their CREATOR with certain inalienable rights, that among these are LIFE, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness”.

LIFE is the first right of three inalienable rights that are gifts from GOD... not government and not man... GOD ALMIGHTY. Have a great evening friend.

Brit Hume's commentary of this evening is well worth watching.

Click here.

Yes, it's mostly a statement of the obvious, but he says some things that need to be said more often -- including references to the abject hypocrisy of the pro-abortion movement, in calling it "choice," and in the largest abortion provider in the nation referring to itself as "Planned Parenthood."

I wrote this in response to an email I received today:

“Have you seen ANY publicity on the anti-Roe V Wade Pro-Life March held in the snow in Washington, DC this past
Wednesday? I attended all of them when I lived in Virginia, and I can tell you that upwards of 200,000 Real Americans attend each year, and they garner absolutely ZERO publicity either before or after the event by the media. The fact that 55 million innocent babies have been murdered before they even had a chance at life is far, far more atrocious than ALL of the millions of murders committed by Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot, Castro, et al.

Congratulations! Isn’t modern medicine wonderful? Thank GOD for all these advances that give longer and healthier lives to so many.

May your great grand niece have a long, healthy, productive and faith-filled life in His service.
