(KPLR) - Outside the White House Wednesday, pro-life groups held this "Die In" demonstration featuring young people in a fetal position on Pennsylvania Avenue, and red blankets being placed over them protesting abortion.

This just one of the events related to the annual March For Life rally, marking 41 years since the landmark Roe v. Wade  Supreme Court ruling.

St. Louisans were also attendance Wednesday, rallying against abortion.

Braving below freezing temperatures and tough driving condition, nearly two-thousand St. Louis Catholics took part in anti-aborting events in nation's capital.

Some 1,600 high schoolers, young adults and a few middle schoolers, took part in the March for Life, calling themselves, Generation Life, representing the Youth Ministry of the St. Louis Archdiocese.

The events began with a noon rally on the National Mall, and proceeded along Constitution Avenue to Capitol Hill, ending at the U.S. Supreme Court.

Another groups representing St. Louis, included ‘The Missouri Right to Life Group”, which brought about 200 members.

Organizers say the theme of this year's event is adoption and eliminating the stigma around adoption as an alternative to abortion.
