Christendom College leads the 2012 March for Life...

and don't their shining faces remind you of the occupests?  /sarc

On January 23, the entire student body of Christendom College, including members of the faculty and staff, led the 39th Annual March for Life in Washington, D.C.

There were an estimated half million people marching and the MSM said zip.  

Who is Nellie Gray?

From Wiki:
Nellie Gray is an American pro-life activist, who founded the annual March for Life, beginning in 1974, following the Supreme Court ruling, Roe v Wade, which decriminalized abortion the previous year.
A native of Texas and a Roman Catholic convert, Miss Gray served as a corporal in the Women's Army Corps (WAC) during World War II. She later earned a bachelor's degree in business and a master's in economics. 

She was an employee of the federal government for almost three decades, at the Departments of State and Labor. After attending Georgetown University Law School, she became a practicing lawyer. After Roe v Wade, she retired from her professional life and became a pro-life activist, beginning with the March for Life.
