Even with a major blizzard bearing down on them, thousands of pro-lifers marched up Capitol Hill in Washington DC, today.
The rally started at noon, according to the Washington Post, “near the corner of 15th Street and Constitution Avenue, just north of the Washington Monument.”
At about 1 p.m., the group will begin a march east along Constitution Avenue and up to First Street NE, in front of the U.S. Supreme Court. The nearest Metrorail stations for the disbanding crowd will be Capitol South and Union Station.
Based on the latest forecast from the Capital Weather Gang, the participants will be cutting it close if they hope to avoid getting delayed by the storm after the march. The storm is likely to arrive sometime between noon and 5 p.m. Conditions will worsen after dark and continue to be bad through Saturday night.
Here is a live feed of the march, via EWTN:
Carly Fiorina – who is in DC for the march, writes at Townhall:
In less than a year, there will be a new president in the White House. The next president will pick up to four Supreme Court justices who will decide issues of life and religious liberty. She will decide whether we force taxpayers to fund the political arm of the abortion industry. Whether we as a nation believe—as the Democrat platform says—that a life isn’t a life until it leaves the hospital. Whether a baby only a month from being born is only as good as the organs you can sell from it.
Make no mistake—this election will be a fight for the character of our nation.
The establishment media and political class don’t want us to talk about what the abortion industry is doing. You saw what happened when I talked about the horrific truth of the planned parenthood videos during a Republican debate. Unlike the media, you’ve watched the videos. You’ve seen an aborted baby, it’s legs kicking, it’s heart beating while the technician describes how they would keep these babies alive to harvest their organs. The left called me a liar. They said there were no such videos. There are no aborted babies born alive. Nobody is selling baby parts.But look what happened next. Planned Parenthood came out and said they would no longer take compensation for baby organs. Sounds like an admission to me!
Hillary Clinton is giving a pro-abortion speech today in New Hampshire. She is saying that we as conservative women don’t count. But here’s the truth: they have perverted feminism into a left-leaning political ideology where women are pitted against men and used as a political weapon to win elections.
