Thousands of anti-abortion activists and protesters carried posters and shouted slogans in support for the unborn on Friday, as they descended on Washington from various parts of the country for the annual March for Life rally. President Trump addressed the crowds via video from the Rose Garden, saying he is committed to building a "society that is celebrated, protected and cherished," and reaffirming his support for the movement. He said he's the first president to address the gathering in its 45-year history. For anti-abortion activists like Karen Herzog from San Antonio, Texas, who has been attending the yearly rally since 2008, Mr Trump's words are encouraging.

She says the choice of giving her daughter up for abortion empowered her, while helping a couple "complete a family" that is now a part of her own.
