This is really funny. There was apparently a pro-life rally yesterday in Washington D.C to commemorate the 41st anniversary of the Roe v Wade decision. And thousands of people attended.
Now for thousands of people to attend a rally outside with frigid temperatures is commendable. Frankly, they seem unaware that their preferred legislative actions actually increase abortions (is female foeticide higher in India, where it's illegal or in America, where it's legal?), but it's an impressive feat nonetheless.
But this isn't enough for Redstate or LifeNews, which I frequent because of their hilarious, oblivious posts, which claim that HUNDREDS of thousands of people attended the rally.
The same site that calculated this number which was off by a factor of a hundred, also calculated that 57 million fetuses have been aborted since Roe v Wade, which is making the rounds in conservative circles. Ted Cruz posted that number up on his Facebook page yesterday.
These guys are living in their own bubble, just making up random numbers. But I say- why stop at "hundreds of thousands"? "Billions of Americans" sounds better. So let's use that instead.
