WASHINGTON, D.C. (WJRT) -

(01/22/2014) - Thousands of marchers braved the cold and the snow to rally on the National Mall for the 41st annual March for Life rally, the biggest anti-abortion event in the world.

Six busloads of protestors from the Diocese of Saginaw drove 12 hours from Michigan and joined the protestors in the nation's capital.

"It's like ‘wow' it's out of my dreams. I have never seen so many people, it's fantastic," said Jordan Anguiana, a student at the New Vow Catholic Center.

Anguiana said he wants the historic Supreme Court on Roe vs. Wade overturned.

"We're Catholic. We believe that this is not right and we want to put an end to it," he said.

The Michigan group was led by Bishop Joseph Cistone of the Diocese. He said he thinks the march is all about changing the minds and hearts of people around the county and the world, but his focus is on the youth in his diocese.

"We keep talking about what we as adults are leaving behind to the next generation," Cistone said. "These young people want us to leave a culture of life for them and it's exciting to see their enthusiasm and spirit here."

The march's theme this year was adoption, in an attempt to attract more women to the cause.

The snow and chilly temps affected the size of the march, but not the spirit of the people gathered here.

With so many Washington-bound trains and buses canceled the group from Michigan said they are just glad they made it here safely to fight for their cause.
