Today I attended the Annual March for Life, the largest protest gathering of any kind seen at the nation’s capital. In it’s 19th year, the crowds get bigger every year but what would a good protest be without a counter-protest?
They came too and unfortunately, turned violent even clashing with police but their numbers were small, especially in comparison to those who were there to spread the pro-life message.
A diverse crowd of young and old from all walk’s of life including the Rebel’s own William Hadrian who had a chance to speak to a number of people at the march about where they were from and why they were there.
As encouraging as all of it is, including the growing numbers who attend every year, it’s discouraging that such a powerful statement, falls on deaf ears.
Watch my video and remember, whether you agree with their message or not, this is all part of the democratic process and should be encouraged. You don’t have to agree with their point of view, but we should all respect their right to hold it.
I just wish the violence-prone protesters who tried to shut this down today understood that.
