Students represent the Archdiocese of Hartford at the March for Life today on the National Mall.

Earlier in the day, about 300 people attended a Mass celebrated by Archbishop Leonard P. Blair at the Washington hotel in which the group sponsored by the Archdiocese of Hartford’s Pro-Life Ministry stayed.

The rally and march annually protest the Roe v. Wade decision to legalize abortion made by the U.S. Supreme Court on Jan. 22, 1973.

“Every Child is a Gift” is the theme of this year’s event.

According to Marchforlife.org, 1.1 million babies are aborted each year. (Photo by Maria Zone)
