For 43 years, this Pro-Life rally has been held to protest abortion and since its inception, the rally has grown by thousands of marchers each year, even having close to 600,000 marchers in 2013. The March is organized by the March for Life Education Defense Fund and its goal is to make people aware of the tragedy of abortion, overturn the Roe v. Wade decision and reduce access to the procedure.
