Both pro-choice and pro-life factions publicly claim this as a good thing and also claim to be responsible for the decline. This decline doesn't keep the issue from being any less charged politically.

The March For Life is 44 years old.

National Park Service officials, speaking to IJR on background, noted the attendance to be over 100,000.

Whatever opinion someone holds holds on the abortion issue, Americans continue to cherish the right to let their voices be heard.
