The Associated Press reported that “thousands” took part, while pro-life journalists who were present estimated the crowd at 500,000. “One day, we will be here and triumph, because love and truth always triumph,” former Sen. Rick Santorum told the crowd. The march was preceded by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ annual National Prayer Vigil for Life at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. An estimated 13,000 were in attendance. “There is no doubt that the next major assault on the Gospel of Life will come from those pushing physician assisted suicide and euthanasia,” Cardinal Seán O’Malley preached. “The society that allows parents to kill their children will allow children to kill their parents.” Additional sources for this story Some links will take you to other sites, in a new window.
