Wednesday, the temps went below freezing in Washington, D.C. With the stinging windchill, it felt like single digits.
But thousands came from across America and marched through slush and snow in the annual March For Life, for the right to life of the unborn.
All while their president, who had voted three times for infanticide by voting against the Born Alive Infants Protection Act and whose signature Obamacare forces Americans to subsidize abortion, sat in the White House.
Meredith Somers reports for The Washington Times, Jan. 22, 2014, that the thousands of Americans included church congregations, youth groups, university students and men and women of the cloth. Texas flags fluttered in the air, while cheers from groups out of the Plains echoed across the Mall.
Among the marchers were:
♥ 18-year-old Raneem Alayoubi, of Detroit, Mich., who was on crutches. Referring to the icy weather, the petite brunette said, “This is only a temporary thing. Not being born is forever.”
♥ Ian Sheedy, a sophomore at Holy Family Academy in Manassas, Va., who held one half of a banner with his school’s name in navy and gold.
♥ James Marafino, a junior at The Catholic University, who said “The university closed with the storm. People were wondering if this was still going to happen. I was like, ‘Oh yeah!’” Between 300 and 400 students from his university had come out to march.
♥ And FOTM’s very own MD Hobbit! Here are some pics she took of the March:
