Thousands of pro-life marchers from across the United States braved the cold in the nation’s capital on Friday, January 20, 2019 for the 46th annual March for Life which marked the anniversary of the January 22, 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion in the United States. The theme of this year’s March was “Unique From Day One”.
At the conclusion of the pre-March program, Metropolitan Tikhon presided at the celebration of a prayer service before making his way with the Orthodox Christian marchers to the Supreme Court building. Among the participants in the service was US Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar, a member of DC’s Saint Nicholas Cathedral.
