As hundreds of thousands gathered Wednesday in Washington D.C. to protest abortion, Pope Francis tweeted his support for them. According to Vatican Radio, the tweet was published in both Spanish and English. Pope Francis tweeted,

"I join the March for Life in Washington with my prayers. May God help us respect all life, especially the most vulnerable."

Hundreds of thousands of people are expected to brave the cold weather Wednesday, to joint the March for Life, protesting the anniversary of the Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade, 40 years ago, which effectively legalized abortion in the U.S.

Among the groups taking part each year in the March for Life is Human Life International. It's Director, Joseph Meaney, said, "On the grass roots, I think the pro-life movement in the U.S. is, I think, very aggressively moving forward. One of the things, I find most interesting, is the way that young people have been polling consistently more pro-life and how the abortion industry itself, has been suffering a lot in recent years. The Pro-Life movement is the longest acting and most massive human rights movement in U.S. history, and one that is still going strong."

The March for Life marks the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision known as Roe v. Wade that effectively legalized abortion throughout the country. Since that time, over 55 million babies are estimated to have been legally killed in the U.S.
