A CNS preview of the March for Life

Go here for a Catholic News Service article previewing the annual March for Life in Washington. It also describes several other pro-life events going on in the nation's capital in the days leading up to the march.

Although many eyes will be turned to Washington in the coming days, I'll be interested to see what will happen tomorrow (Jan. 21) at the March for Life West Coast. Here is how the CNS article described what occurred last year:

The 2005 event was the first large-scale Roe v. Wade anniversary demonstration to be held in the Bay Area. It drew 7,000 pro-lifers. As they walked along the city's waterfront, the marchers at times were met with jeers and crude signs from many of the 3,000 abortion supporters who staged a counterdemonstration.

You can go here to read coverage of last year's March for Life West Coast in the San Francisco Catholic. Their archives are kind of interesting. All of the online articles for a single edition in the archives are on one page. So to get to the coverage of the march, you'll have to scroll down a bit.
