The March for Life is the largest and longest annual gathering in the history of the United States. About 400,000 (and growing) gather annually in Washington, D.C. in support of life and against abortion.[1] The March for Life began in 1974, on the first anniversary of Roe v. Wade (1973).[2] In addition, over 100,000 gather around the nation in various cities. The next March for Life will be on Monday, January 23, 2012.[3]

Founded by Miss Nellie Gray, who has led it ever since, she also has a non-profit organization by the same name which provides educational workshops typically the day before the March. Many organizations and groups from across the nation attend the March for Life. For example, Conservapedia has led increasing numbers to the March for Life each year beginning in 2009, and led more than a hundred participants on the very cold day of January 24, 2011.

The influence of the March for Life is approximately 20 times its attendance, as the average person who attends communicates his participation to 20 others.[4] An attendance of 400,000 thereby influences perhaps 8 million persons annually, and during a period of a decade the cumulative overall influence reaches perhaps 40 million persons in a personal way.

The March for Life has grown to participation by about 1 in every 400 Americans from East of the Mississippi River.[5] Additional people from across the nation and out West also travel to attend the March for Life:
