1. SOUNDBITE (English): Nina Nowaczyk, pro-life protester, from Chicago

"We think this is a human rights issue. And we are here to show our support for all women that are facing an unplanned pregnancy to please reconsider and choose life. This is very important for these young girls to witness this. We think it's a moment of history. We are very much praying that this Roe V. Wade law is overturned."

2. SOUNDBITE (English): Yasemin Ayarci, pro-choice protester, from Levittown, Pennsylvania

"The Pro-choice movement doesn't have this sort of a march because we think it's something that should be private. And it should be something that a woman has access to. So, there's really nothing to say. They're all just kids."

3. SOUNDBITE (English): Ken Arnold, pro-life protester

"The reason that I do it is that I escort young youth. It's interesting, so many people think that the people who are struggling against the tragedy of abortion that they happen to be male or somebody who is disinterested. And the vast majority of the people out here are young and women. And I think that says a lot."

4. SOUNDBITE (English): Margaret Wynne, pro-life protester, from Arlington, Virginia

"well I mean as any citizen would be, I just try to exercise my voting rights and vote pro-life and send messages to Congress and legislators, both at the state and federal level. And I just hope over time with prayer and effort. We'll see this horrible atrocity ended."

5. Various of march from the National Mall to the Supreme Court

STORYLINE:

Thousands of anti-abortion demonstrators are marching through Washington to the steps of the U. S. Supreme Court to protest the landmark decision that legalized abortion.

"This is very important for these young girls to witness this," said Nina Nowaczyk, a pro-life protestor from Chicago. We think it's a moment of history. We are very much praying that this Roe V. Wade law is overturned."

Crowds held signs and chanted Friday on the National Mall and surrounding streets for the March for Life.

The demonstration this year coincides with the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that created a constitutional right to abortion. Earlier this week, opponents marked the anniversary with workshops, prayers and calls for more limits on abortion rights.

Pro-choice activist Yasemin Ayarci traveled from Levittown, Pennsylvania to participate in a counterprotest to the March for Life.

"The Pro-choice movement doesn't have this sort of a march because we think it's something that should be private," said Ayarci. "And it should be something that a woman has access to. So, there's really nothing to say."

Among the speakers was former Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum. He says the country responded with love to the struggles of his daughter, Bella, who was born with a serious genetic condition. He said the family is better off for having Bella in their lives.
