On this date, 2012: the passing of Nellie Gray

Nellie Gray, founder of the annual March for Life in Washington, D.C., died one year ago today. When she organized the first march, held in 1974 on the first anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision, I doubt she had any idea how important her project would become. In this four-minute video from the March for Life organization, released after Nellie’s death, some pro-life heroes in their own right share their appreciation for this remarkable woman.
