WASHINGTON -- Arriving by the busloads, thousands of anti-abortion protesters rallied in the U.S. capital Friday with a growing sense of optimism that their goal was finally in reach: a sweeping rollback of abortion rights.

The March for Life, for decades an annual protest against abortion, was held as the Supreme Court has indicated it will allow states to impose tighter restrictions on abortion with a ruling in the coming months -- and possibly overturn the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling that affirmed the constitutional right to an abortion.
