WASHINGTON, DC (January 28, 2012) - The March for Life on Monday, January 23 saw half a million people take to the streets of the nation's capital to share their pro-life convictions and join together for the common cause of stopping abortion.

According to LifeNews, an estimated 500 thousand people attended the 2012 March for Life once again breaking the record for the largest human rights demonstration of its kind. This year the majority of marchers were under the age of 25.

They were touring the Capitol, enjoying the Smithsonian museums on the National Mall, pushing strollers around the monuments, singing, and holding yellow balloons in mitten-clad hands. They were everywhere. They were March for Life participants, visiting Washington, D.C. on the anniversary of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision to protest the legalization of abortion--and they are getting younger and more vocal each year.

Watch this new video that is going viral and see who really attended the March for Life (Video by Marc Jean Paul):
