WASHINGTON A march on Washington. Hundreds of thousands from all around descending on our nation’s capital this Friday for the annual March for Life. It’s a pro-life event marking the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the landmark Supreme Court decision that made abortion lawful. Folks from the Diocese of Bismarck made the long journey to Washington to make their voices heard.
“Lives just matter. I guess that’s what it comes down to...young, old, all around the world,” said Olivia Gronos from the Diocese of Bismarck.
Gronos and the Diocese made the 1500 mile trip to take part in the event.
“I really hope and pray that it does spur some sort of action, just to open the eyes of how important and beautiful life is,” said Gronos.
She says she wants to spread the message of loving life, and to inspire some legal change.
President Trump has said he would push to overturn Roe v. Wade.
“As much as it would be great to change the law right now, which is part of our goal, we’re also here to change the hearts of people involved,” said Jacob Bennett, a seminarian at the Diocese of Bismarck.
He says beyond changing the law, he just wants their message to carry to every American, pro-life and pro-choice alike.
“We have a great hope and in this great hope we will be successful because this will not stop,” said Bennett.
The group makes the journey home to Bismarck Saturday.
