WASHINGTON, D.C. – St. Louisans joined thousands in Washington, D.C., Friday for the annual March For Life, the biggest anti-abortion rights rally in the country.

A group from the Archdiocese of the St. Louis made the trip to the nation’s capital to take part.

This is the 49th annual march, which was created in opposition to the Supreme Court’s Roe vs. Wade decision that held there’s a constitutional right to abortion.

The U.S. Supreme Court is currently considering a challenge to Roe.
