Commemorating the 62 million unborn babies who have lost their lives in the 48 years since the U.S. Supreme Court legalized abortion throughout pregnancy in the United States of America.
(Roe v Wade ~1973)
Pro-Lifers will gather together behind Montpelier City Hall (approximately 10:15AM) for the annual March to the Capitol. Signs will be provided by VRLC for everyone at that time. Those who do not wish to participate in the March are welcome to go directly to the State House steps for the remaining portions of the event.
There will be a short ceremony on the steps of the State House in recognition of the unborn.
A group photo of all participants will be taken on the State House steps before conclusion of the program.
We march because we believe in the sanctity of life. We march in remembrance of the millions of unborn babies who were aborted before their birth. And we march in the hope that one day abortion will end.
For those interested, there will be two Montpelier church services prior to the March, both praying specifically for increased respect for human life.
9:30AM ~ Saint Augustine’s Church Respect Life Mass (9:00AM Rosary) 16 Barre Street, Montpelier. To reserve seating please call ahead at 802-223-5285 (limit 120 people).
9:30AM ~ Lighthouse Christian Church, 3 St Paul Street, Montpelier
For those of you who are unable to join us at the rally, there will be an online virtual rally of the events of the day, along with an interview with Melissa Ohden, abortion survivor.
