While most participants in the march carried decorative and creative signs displaying their disgust with America's abortion laws, a group of Catholics from St. Athanasius Roman Catholic Church in Vienna, Virginia marched while carrying the statue of Our Lady of Fatima.

As they marched, they prayed the Rosary.

"It was an apparition that took place 100 years ago this year and this is a blessed statue. We are praying the rosary as we march," a representative of the group told CP. "We are praying for reparation for the sin of abortion."
