I discovered through Facebook that the annual March for Life protesting Roe vs Wade had been larger than normal this year (even opponents reported 400,000 protesters!) despite cold weather and a Presidential inauguration the week before. Interestingly our local ABC choose not to report it and the BBC and TIME had nothing to say. You had to search for it in both Washington Post which put it in the 'local' section and the New York Times before you got some reporting. Of course there was no dramatic aerial shot of the Mall showing the size of the crowd although some shots showed the youthfulness of the protestors which is also interesting.
