I covered the March for Life in Washington, D.C. for United Press International today. Tens of thousands of anti-abortion rights supporters from across the U.S. descended on Washington, D.C. for the annual march to Capitol Hill and the Supreme Court.

Normally the march goes off without a problem, but this year a small counter protest brought the march to a halt on the street in front of the Supreme Court. Holding signs saying “abortion on demand and without apology,” a few dozen pro-choice activists held up the march for about an hour eventually resulting in their arrest by Capitol Police.

It made it a bit more interesting than usual.

I am in a bit of a monochrome mood these days so again I am presenting some of my favorites from the day in B&W.
