Missed the March for Life? Well, can you watch the whole thing in the time it takes to say three Hail Marys.
As it has done in the past, the pro-life group Students for Life released a 45-second-long time-lapse video of the marchers filing past an elevated camera set up along the route.
The turnout for the Jan. 21 march in Washington, D.C., as you can see, was huge. While it’s not the practice of the march’s organizers or the police to provide specific estimates of the size of the crowd, Students for Life, calculates that about 150,000 people paraded past its camera post.
“The cold couldn’t dampen the spirits of the Pro-Life Generation who knew we were celebrating the last anniversary of Roe v. Wade,” the group, officially Students for Life of America, tweeted on Friday. “The largest human rights march in the world IS against abortion.” You can watch the the march video below.
