.- Inspired by San Francisco’s West Coast Walk for Life, a new event called Walk for Life Central Coast will take place on Saturday, October 24 in San Luis Obispo, California. “Recognizing the supreme value and dignity of every human being, please join us as we Walk for Life through downtown San Luis Obispo,” walk organizers said. “This walk event is designed to move peoples' hearts to end the scourge of abortion upon our great land!”

The event will begin at 11 a.m. at the Mission College Prep Gym. After song and praise, nationally known pro-life speakers Gianna Jessen and Rev. Dr. Clenard Childress Jr. will speak.

Jessen survived a saline abortion attempt before she was born and is now a talented singer despite suffering cerebral palsy caused by the attempt on her life. Rev. Childress is pastor of the New Calvary Baptist Church in Montclair, New Jersey and a founder of the Life Education and Resource Network (LEARN).

The walk through downtown San Luis Obispo will begin at 1:30 in the afternoon. Its route will pass a Planned Parenthood clinic and end at the Old Mission Catholic Church.

At 3:00 p.m., Bishop of Monterey Richard Garcia will lead a Rosary for Life followed by Holy Mass inside the mission church.
