Life News has the real story:
Proving the pro-life movement is alive and well despite abortion advocates obtaining control of Congress last November, hundreds of thousands of pro-life advocates participated in the annual March for Life. The mood was optimistic and positive despite 34 years of legalized abortion since the Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade decision.
Independent confirmation of the size of the crowd, plus additional chances for readers to get a perspective on the number of people present (no aerial shots, unfortunately), is at "Barbara's Public March for Life 2007 Gallery," where Barbara says:
As a former radical leftist, I attended many demonstrations in Washington, DC. Now having attended the March for Life two years in a row, I'm amazed at how under-reported the March for Life is - and all too aware of how that under-reporting contributes to the rampant stereotyping of pro-lifers as middle-aged white males. I actually saw very few of those today! What I saw were hundreds of thousands of people willing to brave the cold (DC had its first snow of the winter the night before) to affirm that a baby in the womb is not property to be destroyed, but a person that those committed to human rights must defend. It's a child, not a choice!
As has been the case for decades, those who are supposed to bring us the news couldn't and/or wouldn't accurately report what was occurring right in front of them:
For crowd size context, look at this picture from the prolife rally this previous weekend in San Francisco, where the San Francisco Chronicle reported that 20,000 attended. The marchers are compressed into a long line that is the width of two lanes of traffic, while the Washington throng pictured at the Life News link above is at least 6-8 lanes wide, and appears to extend back through many blocks.
Every year for the past 34 years, hundreds of thousands of prolife advocates have marched in Washington. In almost every year, the March for Life has been the single largest demonstration taking place in the nation's capital. And every year for the past 34 years, incontrovertible evidence that what has become the formerly Mainstream Media is incorrigibly biased against what Life at the Frontier calls "The Greatest Mass Movement of Our Time" is there for all who have eyes to see.
