Pro-Life Wisconsin marks somber anniversary of Roe v. Wade

.- On the 35th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, Pro-Life Wisconsin is marking the day in many ways: through affiliate events, prayer and a presence in Washington, D.C.

“Hundreds of pro-life Wisconsin residents are in Washington, D.C. to express their opposition to this Supreme Court decision that is responsible for the deaths of over 48 million babies,” said Peggy Hamill, State Director of Pro-Life Wisconsin.
 
Two buses with over one hundred Pro-Life Wisconsin supporters traveled to Washington, D.C. for the March for Life. The theme for this year’s March for Life is “Build unity on the life principles throughout America – No exception! No compromise!”
 
The Pro-Life Wisconsin supporters spent the past Sunday and Monday in Washington, D.C. taking part in youth rallies, training workshops, and the annual Mass for Life held in the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception.
 
“The fact that our own buses were filled to the brim represents the hope pro-lifers do carry with them,” said Peggy Hamill, State Director of Pro-Life Wisconsin. “I am hopeful because so many of our March for Life attendees were teens, and that speaks volumes for where the pro-life movement is headed in this country.”
 
Over 200,000 pro-lifers have congregated in Washington, D.C. in protest of Roe v. Wade. In addition, nationwide, thousands of pro-lifers rally in their hometowns. 
 
“We are motivated to return to Wisconsin and continue our life-saving work,” said Hamill. “Our efforts to stop the killing of innocent children continue year-round.”
