Pro life is a controversial topic among modern society, so it tends to raise eyebrows when a massive gathering takes place to support the cause. Through the eyes of a participant, a sea of people with pro-life signs and chants for as far as the eye can see on a snowy day.

The March for life originally took place in 1974, with around 20,000 people, and was originally intended to be a one time event. It quickly took off and became a yearly event with 650,000 attendants in 2013.

For some people, a little bit of perspective is needed. And Sara Schockemoehl is here to provide.

“My parents being Catholic and pursuing pro life has really helped to advance my faith,” Sara said.

For her and many others supporting pro life in any way possible makes them feel more solid in their relationship with God.

Sometimes people tend to think of the March for Life as an aggressive protest, but to Fr. Kastl this could not be farther from the truth.

“The pro life movement tends to take on a hateful tone, but at its core, it has a deep respect for parents in that situation,” Kastl said.

Although there are occasionally aggressive people in the protests, the vast majority of people want to maintain a peaceful atmosphere.

Despite the fact there were some controversies in the midst of the protest, the protesters accomplished this goal according to Mrs. Cruice.

“When we started there were hundreds of thousands of people not in protest, but in celebration at the march,” Cruice said. This refers back to Kastl’s view of the core respect for abortion stricken parents.

Despite the occasional controversies and people who take it too far, when the march is firing on all cylinders it creates an extreme atmosphere of hundreds of thousands of people spreading an idea of peace.
