    Re: the March for Life. This event was almost totally ignored by the secular media in the United States. Similar,much smaller demonstrations for gun control were widely covered throughout the country. It shows where the media has its mind set. If it weren’t for EWTN,the whole March for Life would have faded into oblivion.
