The Washington Post found the pro-life march newsworthy, making it a Page 2 story . The Los Angeles Times also ran a story , albeitone accompanied bya misleading photo of a pro-choice protestor.
President Barack Obama reaffirmed his commitment to protecting abortion rights on Wednesday, the 35th anniversary of the landmark Supreme Court decision, Roe v. Wade, and said that it "stands for a broader principle: that government should not intrude on our most private family matters."
The march wasn't mentioned until paragraph five.
Mr. Obama's position has anti-abortion groups worried. The president of National Right to Life, Wanda Franz, predicted that the president would pursue a "radical agenda" and on his watch, the number of abortions would "increase dramatically."
And on the National Mall, where millions gathered on Tuesday to witness Mr. Obama's inauguration, tens of thousands held a rally today marking the Roe v. Wade anniversary, followed by a march to the steps of the Supreme Court.
