March on Washington 2010

Students and teachers from St. John Bosco High School of Leesburg, Virginia, at the March for Life in Washington, D.C. on Jan. 22, 1999

Reasons for marching:

§ Since Roe vs. Wade effectively legalized abortion in the United States in 1973, 50 million children have been aborted.

§ In 2003, for every 1,000 live births in the United States, 312 children were aborted.

§ Nearly half of all abortions are obtained by women who have already had an abortion.

§ In 2000-2001, the rates among black and Hispanic women were 49 per 1,000 and 33 per 1,000, respectively, vs. 13 per 1,000 among non-Hispanic white women.

§ Beginning around 1989, the growth rate of the U.S. population began to slow dramatically, as a result of hundreds of thousands of abortions of children of the Baby Boomer generation who would never bear children.

§ The population growth rate in the United States continues to decline, and experts project that total population will begin to decline between 2030 and 2050.

§ Scientists have documented a 40 percent increased incidence of breast cancer among women having abortions.
