Thousands of anti-abortion activists turned out for the 45th annual March for Life at the National Mall on Friday afternoon.

The annual event is a protest of the anniversary of the Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade ruling that legalized abortion in 1973.

It's one of the largest anti-abortion gatherings in the nation and this year was no different. The crowd grew as activists began to rally near the National Monument early in the morning.

Thousands held signs, chanting messages, and marching down Constitution avenue towards the U.S Capitol protesting abortion.
