40th March for Life crowds could top Obama Inauguration

The biggest crowds ever for the annual March for Life protest are expected to hit Washington January 25 as hundreds of thousands attend the 40th anniversary rally to protest the 1973 Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion, according to organizers.

The march, expected to attract tens of thousands more than the record 400,000 two years ago, could rival President Obama’s Inauguration Day crowd, propelled by the growing youth support of efforts to overturn Roe v. Wade, which the president has embraced with open arms. Obama drew 1.8 million in 2009. Just 600,000 are expected January 21st.

One critical sign of how big the march will be: Hotels pre-booked for participants sold out a month ago while many Washington hotels report lukewarm interest for rooms during the Inauguration. In 2009, hotels sold out months in advance as an excited nation readied to welcome the first black president.

Jeanne Monahan, president of the March organizer, the March for Life Education and Defense Fund, told Secrets, “We’re going to have record breaking crowds.”

    I’ll probably go with my cousin. We usually drive to MD and catch the Metro (Blue line?) into DC.

    If I stay near DC it would probably be out towards Chantilly VA (end of Metro Orange line) unless there are cheaper hotels in MD. I haven’t checked yet.

    The MSM will not report on it. It will be like it didn’t happen.
    “THE ONE” is all that matters.

    The press will just zoom in on the obamabots to make the inauguration crowd look bigger than it is. They will find a small group of pro-life people and report that it is the largest group they could find.

    Personally, I would like someone to place a hidden camera in the room where 0bama will take his second oath of office, like he did in 2009. I’d really like to hear what he has to say. Of course, since it will all be in arabic with his hand on the koran, we won’t understand it anyway.

    Life is far more important than Barry’s second coronation and those of us who know that outnumber those on the other side, guaranteed. And let’s hope that Harry Blackmun, Sarah Weddington et al have a special place in Hell to watch the coronation of their boy.

    I agree SIS, the media will just add the numbers of the attendees to the inauguration figures and then try to tell those that were at the march, that they were really marching to support obama and not the right to life. It’s the leftists’ way. They’ll also try and add the numbers of the welfare moochers who will show up on the mall for MLK day because no black person in DC works on that day.

    Particularly in light of the fact that apart from hollyweird morons and diehard washington beltway rats, there is virtually no interest in that booger celebrating himself.

    Just like in 2009 I would rather bath in a tub full of steaming dogshit than participate in any way shape or fashion in an Obama inauguration.
