Local students travel to D.C. for March for Life rally

Posted: Updated:

Thousands of anti-abortion demonstrator will gather in Washington D.C. to remind lawmakers that they're watching.  

Nineteen buses will be leaving from Tri-state schools and Catholic parishes tomorrow and Thursday to participate in the March for Life event.

The annual March for Life rally marks the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the landmark Supreme Court decision that led to legalized abortion nationwide.

The fierce national abortion debate played out Tuesday in front of the Supreme Court, where a small group of pro-choice demonstrators gathered. One man shouted back in defiance, saying without the right to life, you have no rights.

Friday's March for Life rally will begin before noon on the Mall and then move along Constitution Avenue to Capitol Hill and the Supreme Court.

The U.S. National Park Service is helping shift from the inauguration to the anti-abortion march.
