Pro-Lifers Gather for the 50th March for Life in Washington DC

Summary from the AllSides News Team

On Friday, marchers will gather in Washington, D.C. for the 50th March for Life, the first march since the Supreme Court overturned Roe vs. Wade last June.

For Context: Most pro-life messages focus on sanctioning clinics or doctors, but some seek repercussions for those seeking to end a pregnancy.  Meanwhile, polling shows that most Americans are in the middle when it comes to abortion. Some pro-choice groups don't want the government preventing others from getting an abortion, and some pro-lifers want abortion protected in cases of incest, rape, or when the life of the mother might be in danger.

Key Quotes: "Women should always be held harmless," said Marilyn Musgrave, vice president of government affairs at SBA Pro-Life America. "I think they [abortion rights advocates] are just biding their time," said Jennifer Dalven, director of the Reproductive Freedom Project at the ACLU, in a press call.

How the Media Covered it: The March for Life is being covered across the political spectrum. Some right-rated sources touted the Supreme Court's overturning of Roe v. Wade as a positive development. Some left-rated sources focused on former President Donald Trump's recent criticisms of pro-life evangelists who have not yet endorsed his 2024 campaign.
