Over the course of 40 years, laws have changed and society's perceptions have shifted beyond a simple division between pro-life and pro-choice. Issues such as the death penalty, assisted suicide, "do not resuscitate" medical orders and euthanasia frequently enter the right-to-life debate these days.
Lawmakers are not ignoring the March for Life, scheduled at high noon Wednesday on the National Mall, and currently the largest pro-life demonstration on the planet, according to organizers.
In a rally described as "a turning point" on the abortion issue, hundreds of thousands of pro-life supporters, most of whom were college-age or younger, marched for an end to abortion in the United States.
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.
Marking the 40th anniversary this week of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court ruling, The Washington Times asked leading advocates on both sides of the issue to discuss the ruling, the present state of the abortion debate and where American attitudes on abortion are heading in the coming years.

Free birth control led to dramatically lower rates of abortions and teen births, a large study concluded Thursday. The findings were eagerly anticipated and come as a bitterly contested Obama administration policy is poised to offer similar coverage.

Insurance companies must fully cover contraception, HIV and HPV screening and a handful of other women's health services under new guidelines released Monday by the Obama administration.
Free birth control, including the controversial "morning-after" pill, could soon be added to a list of services insurers must fully cover under President Obama's health care law.
Although the march's theme might change each year, the focus is on abortion and "beginning of life" issues, Ms. Monahan said.
