3. "Pikachu"

Giving "Don Juan de San Juan" a run for most unique outfit of the march is Andrew Tevald, a New Jersey native who came to the March for Life with a Pennsylvania young adults organization called Lehigh Valley Pro-Life Future.

Tevald came to the march dressed up as the Pokemon character "Pikachu" and put the pro-life argument in terms that Pokemon followers can understand.

"The idea is that Pikachu is valuable and people want to catch him but he is still valuable whether he is out in the wild or inside the Pokeball," Tevald explained. "A person is a human being whether he is outside the womb or inside the womb."

Tevald explained that at first, his idea to dress as Pikachu for the march was just a joke amongst his friends.

"But my friends said that it is a good idea," he said.
