Pro-life rally features march, speakers
Sunday, January 20, 2013
Pro-life supporters filled the Missouri Capitol Rotunda on Saturday morning for the 2013 Midwest March for Life.
Occurring nearly 40 years after Roe v. Wade — a court ruling establishing a right to abortion on Jan. 22, 1973 — the Midwest March for Life promoted an end to abortion.
The event began at the Governor’s Mansion, where supporters clutching pro-life signs proceeded to High Street to march to the Capitol.
At the Capitol, the event included speakers from various pro-life organizations across Missouri and testimonies from Silent No More Awareness, an organization that reaches out to women and men who have been hurt by abortion.
