The mainstream media, as usual, provided little coverage of the March for Life and the hundreds of thousands of people who lined the streets of the nation’s capital to mourn the loss of 56 million  unborn children who have perished from abortion since Roe v. Wade.

However, a powerful new video produced by Katie Yoder of the Media Reseach Center provides compelling pictures and footage of the sea of pro-life people who jammed the streets in Washington to raise awareness of the plight of unborn children.

President Barack Obama issued a message celebrating abortion but polling data shows Americans are pro-life and few agree with Obama’s unlimited abortion position. Pope Francis sent out a tweet praying for the marchers.

As with other recent marches, the number of young adults and high school and college students impressed organizers and provided another reason to be optimistic.
