March For Life In D.C.

A group of 32 local activists from Otsego and Delaware County pose for a photo as they prepare for the annual March For Life in Washington D.C.

The March, which tens of thousands descended upon the Capitol for, showcased a much younger crowd than previous marches, with more teenagers and young adults getting involved in the movement to end abortions.
