March for Life in DC: Photos from the anti-abortion protest

Anti-abortion protesters gathered in Washington, D.C., on Friday, Jan. 27, 2017, to take part in the 44th annual March for Life.

Armed with signs that said, "Choose life," and "Babies' lives matter," tens of thousands of people flooded the National Mall by mid-afternoon.

The rally's speakers included Vice President Mike Pence, counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway and New York Cardinal Timothy Dolan.

Some protesters also staged a "die-in" outside of the White House.
