Crowds Swarm Onto National Mall for Annual Anti-Abortion Protest

Anti-abortion activists swarmed the streets of Washington, DC, on January 24 to take part in the 47th annual March for Life, a rally that calls for abortion to be outlawed.

US President Donald Trump made an appearance at the march and gave a speech where he expressed his solidarity with the anti-abortion movement. He is the first president to attend the March for Life. Previous Republican politicians made statements via a video link.

The march is held on the Friday closest to January 22, to mark the anniversary of the Roe v Wade Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion nationwide. Credit: Michael Kinney via Storyful
