My bet is that they did know what it was about but that not many were truly devoted to the actual issue. Just their age. It's ludicrous that they were taken to the rally in the first place.

"Fake News CNN is back obsessing over crowd sizes, but instead of President Trumpís inauguration, it was the annual March for Life."

Liberal news lie about this every year. I don't know why they are so afraid of it------well yes I do actually.

You can watch the whole march video from beginning to end.
perhaps you could post the sound byte of CNN claiming there were only 1k people in the march.

My children (now adults) both went to Catholic high schools local to the March for Life. The kids are basically "heavily encouraged" to go. The whole school goes and gets bussed. If you don't go, you can't stay home unless you lie and say you're sick. You have to come to school and sit in a detention-like atmosphere all day in order to not get a negative absence on your record.

I hope one day we move on from this stupidity as roe vs wade was over a half century ago already. If you donít want an abortion then donít get one. Or cover it up like a republican politician would.
You completely miss the point. People who are pro-life feel it's wrong to have their tax money pay for them.

So basically it is a forced field trip, which is actually in keeping with the pro-forced birth message of the march. Force the kids to go and march for the cause of forcing every pregnant woman in America to give birth, whether they want to or not.

Yep, that sounds about right for the Catholic Church.

So what do impoverished people who are most likely to need them do then? Clearly the right is against public assistance. So if you’re poor you get no abortion and can’t pay for the child.

Also I’m pretty sure kids don’t care about taxes.

Well then they have nothing to worry about or march for because tax money does not pay for abortions. Problem solved!

Still want to march? Hmm, maybe it is actually about wanting to control the private decisions that women make with the guidance of their doctors...

The whole school goes to a political rally? That's nuts. I can see a field trip that has nothing to do with a political rally but to basically force kids to go to a rally? No way, no how.

Where was your tax money when my boyfriend & I paid for my abortion? I'd like you to fork it over please.
