Tens of thousands of protesters have attended the annual ‘March For Life’ in Washington DC at the first major pro-life rally to take place since the pandemic broke out.
The event is held every year around the anniversary of the landmark 1973 Roe versus Wade decision which effectively legalised abortion across the US.
Nearly half a century later, participants marched on the US Supreme Court, optimistic that the now conservative majority of justices will overturn that ruling.
The Court’s due to hand down a decision in June, on a case where the state of Mississippi is asking it to uphold a state law banning abortions after 15 weeks gestation.
Public policy group ‘Concerned Women for America’ told the Christian Post it believes a ruling in favour of Mississippi has every chance after President Trump appointed three new conservative justices to the nation’s highest court.
But it warns that would be just the beginning of the battle, because stopping abortions would then become a state-by-state issue.
