Anti-abortion activists will have multiple reasons to celebrate – and some reasons for unease – when they gather Friday in Washington for the annual March for Life.

The march has been held since January 1974 – a year after the U.S. Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision established a nationwide right to abortion.

This year’s gathering will be the first since the high court struck down Roe in a momentous ruling last June.

And state courts have blocked several abortion bans from taking effect.
