Just in case you missed them, we have added numerous Flickr slideshow photos of the Washington and West Coast marches for life. There are now 93 amazing photos from the Washington event and 50 from the San Francisco event .

See LifeSiteNews editor-in-chief John-Henry Westen receiving the Law of Life Summit's main Law of Life Achievement Award the day before the march in Washington. I was fortunate to just happen to film that completely unexpected development at this conference which Fr. Frank Pavone called “one of the most important gatherings” during the week of the March for Life. I have to add that John-Henry is indeed a worthy recipient of this award although none of us had the remotest idea that he would be given it.
