The song is "Inheritance." The band is "Shadow of the Locust."
They are part of the Lila Rose/Live Action and Rock for Life generation. God Bless them!
In a January 26 interview with Trey on sphereofhiphop.com Wut Metaphysical of Shadow of the Locust described the new song:
"Also, look for a new song/video out by Calmplex, Prefekt and I, filmed at the 2010 Walk for Life rally in San Francisco. It’s called “Inheritance” and is basically a tribute to women who don’t abort."
To learn more about Shadow of the Locust, go here.
Dr. Li and Reverend Tieu are leaders in the Asian American pro-life community, which has added so much to the Walk for Life West Coast in the last two years. They will be discussing their experiences at this year's Walk.

On January 22, a Newsweek writer asked where all the "Young, vibrant women" were in the abortion debate, and concluded "Likely, they're at home."
Apparently, the Walk for Life leaders did not get that memo:

The photo below really gives a feeling for the size of the Walk. The walkers stretch all the way behind the building on the right in a big loop to where you see them coming off Jefferson street--and there are thousands of pro-lifers behind them. Photo courtesy Ray Dinkha.

For those who have not heard of him, Zombie is a well known San Francisco photojournalist and reporter, who records many demonstrations in the Bay Area. Don't let the name fool you, "Zombie" is a serious man. He has been pivotal in a number of exposès that were then followed up by the mainstream media: "Anatomy of a Photograph", "Obama's Science Czar," etc.
Zombie, who describes himself as "mostly pro-choice" attended the Walk. His testimony as to the number of attendees is significant because first, he is not on our side, and secondly, because he has more experience covering San Francisco demonstrations than just about anybody.
Below are three of his pictures and with the accompanying text, courtesy Zombie and Pajamas Media. Caution: the site has some vulgar images of our opposition.
"But those two pictures only showed the back part of the column. I ran ahead and climbed up a staircase to snap yet another picture showing a different segment of the march not visible in the previous photos, streaming around a curve in the Embarcadero and once again disappearing off into infinity in both directions."
"Only 40,000? If you say so…."

What a wonderful expression on this young man's face.
As always, the religious were out in force.
Plenty of Dominicans, including our friend Fr. Anselm, below at left.
A blind man walks for life.
This is by far the best, most detailed, and most accurate news coverage the Walk has received. God Bless him!

Great signs. That's Nyna, below. She's from India, and is making a film about India' missing girls, killed by abortion and infanticide. It's called "Petals in the Dust." You can learn about it and watch a trailer here.
More great signs.
Goths for Life. God Bless her! And she's right: Johnny was surely with us in spirit.
People from everywhere...
God Bless them!
Plenty of pro-life veterans, too:
College students: USF
Ohio State (well, maybe not ;-)
