Local pro-life movement to March for Life
BEMIDJI -- The local pro-life committee has announced details for the 2017 March for Life. The annual March for Life marks the anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s 1973, Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton decisions in regard to the legality of abortion.
The march will take place at noon, Saturday, Jan. 21. The day’s events will begin with a gathering at the Beltrami County Courthouse, followed by a march down Beltrami Avenue finishing at St. Philip’s Catholic Church. Last year, nearly 100 people attended the March for Life and the family event is for all ages.
A short program will take place after the march followed by a soup and sandwich luncheon served by the Knights of Columbus.
