Catholic News Agency is reporting hundreds of pro-life advocates gathered on the west steps of the Colorado capitol Jan. 20 for the March for Life rally and walk ahead of the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade.

Police estimated attendance at 1,500 people, while organizers said it drew more participants than any previous pro-life march in Denver. After the rally, marchers took a winding path through downtown Denver, with many people carrying pro-life signs and banners. Organizers said the march was half a mile long.

Other rally speakers included Fr. W. Scott Daniels, O.P., a priest associate with Priests for Life; pro-life speaker and founder of Issues4Life Walter B. Hoye II of Oakland, Calif.; author and former legal abortion advocate Jane Brennan; Julie Averill, Denver regional coordinator of Silent No More; and Michael Voris of Church Militant TV.
