For 36 years, pro-lifers have come out in force each January to condemn the Roe v. Wade decision and speak out for life. Facing a new pro-abortion administration in Washington, D.C., thousands of pro-lifers rallied in cities and towns across the nation once again, more determined than ever to stand up for the right to life of all Americans, born and unborn. The new political climate contributed to the record number of pro-lifers at the Rally for Life and Lobby Day in Topeka, Kansas, January 22. The 1,500 participants tripled the usual turnout of 500. "I am not at all surprised that more people than usual came out," said Kansans for Life Executive Director Mary Kay Culp. "It's been obvious since Obama was elected that pro-life people everywhere are re-energized."
