Timelapse Shows Crowds at 'March for Life' Near Downtown DC

Big crowds were seen in Washington on Friday, January 21, for the annual March for Life rally, the largest anti-abortion rights demonstration in the country.

Timelapse footage filmed by Greg Price shows hundreds of people making their way down Constitution Avenue. The second clip shows demonstrators chanting, “Hey hey, ho ho, Roe-v-Wade has got to go.”

“Tens of thousands” of protesters attend the rally on the anniversary of the Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe-v-Wade ruling, which legalized abortion in all 50 states, according to the event’s website.

A case currently before the Supreme Court could potentially overturn the landmark decision.
