The 43rd annual March for Life has chosen a special theme this year.
The upcoming March marks the January 22nd anniversary of the Supreme Court's Roe vs Wade decision which legalized abortion in the United States. Since then, over 57 million children have died in the womb.
Jeanne Mancini, who heads the organization, says the theme this year draws attention to a special problem related to an abortion-versus-life decision. The theme is "Every Life is a Gift," which focuses on children who have are diagnosed with a disability in the womb and are aborted at what she calls a "high disproportionate rate."
That includes babies who are aborted because of Down Syndrome, Spina Bifida, Anencephaly and other conditions. In those cases, the abortion rate ranges from 60 to 90 percent, and prenatal diagnoses play a large role in those decisions.
