Opponents of abortion were in Washington Monday. Peggy Hamill is with Pro-Life Wisconsin. She said the crowd in D.C. is the largest she’s ever seen, and includes hundreds from Wisconsin. “We’ve counted at least eleven busses of people, and then people who flew and drove out . . . I’m estimating around 700 people,” Hamill said.
Representatives of pro-life and religious groups converged on the nation’s Capitol to note the 38th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s Roe versus Wade decision, which legalized abortion in the U.S. “We’re all here for a unified message of ‘personhood now,’ the recognition of the unborn child a s person, the last unfinished business of the civil rights movement,” said Hamill. Organizers had expected a larger than usual turnout for this year’s event.
