Pam Tino of Massachusetts also says she sees some significance in this 40th anniversary of the Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion -- and that this might be the year that "something miraculous might happen" for the anti-abortion cause.
Thousands of abortion foes marched through Washington to the steps of the Supreme Court to protest the Roe v. Wade decision.
Among the speakers at a rally was Rick Santorum, the former Pennsylvania senator and presidential candidate. The staunch abortion opponent talked about his young daughter, Bella, who was born with a serious genetic condition and whose illness led him to take some time off from the campaign trail.
He said his daughter is "joyful, she is sweet, she is all about love" -- and that her life is a reason to discourage abortion even in cases when women are told that ending the pregnancy would be "better" for their unborn child.
