Tens of thousands of American pro-life activists joined in the annual March for Life in Washington on January 22, marking the anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision. The marchers crowded the city’s streets and thronged over the Mall. Yet in another annual occurrence, major media outlets virtually ignore the massive rally– or, if they reported on it, gave roughly equal time to the few dozen counter-protestors.
