Demonstrators cheered as President Bush voiced his support for them by phone from Camp David. They also heard from a stream of lawmakers who say they support the cause, says CBS News.

"The America of our dreams, where every child is welcomed ... in life and protected in law may still be some ways away," Bush said in a telephone address to the anti-abortion March for Life. "...

Anti-abortion demonstrators held up signs reading "Thank You President Bush" during the rally.
