Thousands Protest Abortion at March For Life Rally in DC.

Below is the Allsides summary of yesterday’s March for Life. Below that are three articles covering it. Left, Right, and Center.

Summary from the AllSides News Team

Thousands attended the 51st National March for Life in Washington, D.C., on Friday in protest of legalized abortion.

Details: The annual march marks the anniversary of the 1973 Roe v Wade Supreme Court decision that enshrined abortion access as a constitutional right. This court decision was overturned in the summer of 2022. The organization’s website states the annual march continues because “the necessary work to build a culture of life in the United States of America is not finished.”

Key Quotes: House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) spoke at the rally, stating, “We can stand with every woman for every child, and we can truly build a culture that cherishes and protects life.”

Political Fight: The overturning of Roe in the summer of 2022 placed abortion at the center of elections across the country, with many Democratic candidates positioning themselves as defenders of abortion access, and many Republican candidates positioning themselves as champions of the pro-life cause. From congressional races to state supreme court races, the issue of abortion has repeatedly been credited as benefitting Democratic candidates at the ballot box, and is expected to be a key issue in 2024 elections.

How the Media Covered It: Outlets across the spectrum covered the rally, but right-rated outlets covered the event more prominently. The Associated Press (Lean Left bias) and The Hill (Center bias) labeled the attendees “opponents of abortion rights,” while the Washington Times (Lean Right bias) labeled them “pro-life activists.”
