Huge youth prolife rally starts the March for Life on the right note

Before the March for Life officially began today, thousands of prolife youth from across the country packed the Verizon Center to speak out on behalf of life.

The arena was packed with thousands of swaying, praying teenagers, many wearing sweat shirts from the Catholic schools they attend or knit hats that said "We believe" or "March for Life."

On the 38th anniversary of the Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion (Roe v. Wade), the clerics and young people were celebrating Mass before participating in the annual anti-abortion march known as the March for Life.....

Organizers say they expect a larger and more enthusiastic crowd than ever this year, fueled by the increasingly sophisticated use by church leaders of the social networking technology that is effective in organizing young people.
