Other speakers at this year's rally and march include Kellyanne Conway, senior counselor to President Donald Trump; Cardinal Timothy Dolan of New York; Baltimore Ravens tight end Benjamin Watson; and former Planned Parenthood director Abby Johnson.

"But today, three generations hence, because of all of you and the many thousands who stand with us in marches like this all across the nation, life is winning again in America", he continued.

Thousands of people walked from the Washington Monument to the Supreme Court Building in an effort to voice their opinions against abortion. Pence told the crowd that ending taxpayer-funded abortion is an important priority for the President.

"I am deeply humbled to be the first vice president of the United States to ever have the privilege to attend this historic gathering", Pence told the crowd.

The rally comes days before Mr Trump announces his nominee for Supreme Court justice.

"Everyone has a right to protest" including pro-life supporters, added Biggins.

"Anti-Abortion Groups Hold Triumphant Rally After Obama Years" was how the Associated Press titled its coverage of the march, later referring to the pro-life marchers as a "politically ascendant anti-abortion movement".

Glenn Miller, a 60-year-old cabinet maker from Coventry, Connecticut, says this is his fourth march and it's easily the most enthusiastic.

Pence touted recent anti-abortion measures as evidence of President Trump's commitment to the issue.

Pence said the Supreme Court turned away from the country's founding ideals when it struck down an abortion ban in the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, but that times are changing.

Anne Mulrooney with Rochester's Feminists Choosing Life organization says she goes to Washington up against a media narrative. He said he hopes to pass legislation that would make it more hard for minors to cross state lines to obtain abortions without parental consent. Trump has previously promised to fill the vacancy with what he has called a "pro-life" justice and has said he would sign anti-abortion measures approved by the Republican-controlled Congress.

Trump delivered a joint press conference with British Prime Minister Theresa May during the demonstration, but sent Vice President Mike Pence to address the crowd. "We respect you", she said.

Pence said this action illustrates Trump's dedication to keeping his promises to the American people.
