The anti-abortion March for Life is played a bit differently in print this morning than it is online. In print, there's a teaser with a photo at the bottom of A1, which points you to a major front-page above-the-fold Metro story. It's a longer version than what was posted online midday yesterday, and overall gives less play to abortion supporters. There wasn't a pro-abortion march, so I think that works. Funny thing is, though, in the online Post, there's no teaser on the front page, nor is there major play for the story, even in the online Metro section; there's an innocuous headline you have to hunt down.
Online, there's a tiny teaser on the homepage for a story about new abortion restrictons being considered in the Virginia House of Delegates; in print-land, that story is paired with the March for Life leader on the front page of Metro.
