With a slogan created especially for the 40th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision, hundreds of thousands of pro-life activists are expected to swarm the Mall on Friday for the annual March for Life.
In the wake of the Supreme Court's stunning ruling on health care, activists on both sides of the abortion issue have pledged to bring the full weight of their movements into the November election battles.
Had the measure passed, it "would have had far-reaching national implications and set an alarming precedent," Eleanor Smeal, president of Feminist Majority Foundation, told supporters.
"The immediate impact will be felt by low-income women who will not only lose services to abortion but also to birth control, STI testing, and cancer screening as these clinics close," said Eleanor Smeal, president of the Feminist Majority Foundation.
