(Washington, DC)  --  It has been 41 years since Roe versus Wade, the landmark U.S. Supreme Court ruling that led to the legalization of abortion.  During the annual March for Life in the nation's capital, pro-life activists are vowing to continue efforts to overturn Roe versus Wade.  House Majority Leader Eric Cantor predicted that a full "culture of life" will be restored in America in the not-too-distant future.  March for Life President Jeanne Monahan said, "Support for life pervades American society."  She promoted adoption as an alternative to abortion and said there are currently 64 abortions for every one adoption in the U.S.  Participants are braving frigid temperatures in an hour-long rally that will precede a march to the Supreme Court.
