Thousands of abortion opponents descended on Washington for the annual March for Life rally on Wednesday on the 41st anniversary of the decision in Roe v. Wade, the landmark Supreme Court case that legalized abortion. Despite wind chills in the single digits and crunchy snow underfoot, a crowd spanning several blocks huddled on the National Mall to hear speakers such as Representative Eric Cantor of Virginia, the Republican House majority leader, before marching past the Capitol to the Supreme Court.
