200,000++ March Pro-Life spoke with John Alger, the Convention Director of the March for Life about the attendance at this year's march. "The largest estimate to date was 225,000," said Alger. "But we think this was at least as big as the largest if not larger, it was just an overwhelming turnout.
The '60's are over, folks.

Thanks for posting about this -- hadn't heard about it and found this interesting. They seem to have had quite a good turnout -- sounds encouraging for Pro-Lifers.

Not only are the 60s over- the majority of the machers were under 30. I am 47 and felt like a march matron. The Masses held the eve of March at the Shrine and Verizon Center were packed with youth. The "men in black"- prolife priests and women religious were everywhere. More often than not, the youth were backed by a supportative network of family and friends read about the events, prayed and watched reports at home. The "march for life" numbers multiply swiftly when you look at that that way.
