Tens of thousands of Americans attended the 2022 March for Life in Washington, D.C., on Friday to challenge the legality of abortion and celebrate a culture of life. The largest annual pro-life event in the country marks the anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision, the 1973 Supreme Court ruling that legalized abortion nationwide.

Among the best signs that CNA saw at the march:
