Last weekend, the St. Clair County Right to Life organization returned from a trip to Washington D.C. for the annual March for Life. The group sent 80 people who were part of the estimated quarter of a million people who marched in Washington D.C. to show support for pro-life efforts.
According to organizers, the local chapter filled two tour buses with marchers. One bus was filled with teenagers and their adult chaperones. Local Youth Minister, Laurie Elliott, of Port Huron, said of her experience that, “It was amazing…to be walking with so many people who are united to being the voice for the voiceless.”
This year was also the first year that a sitting president spoke to the crowd. While the St. Clair County group didn’t get up close to President Trump, they were able to join in the march to the steps of the Supreme Court along with other pro-life activists. The March for Life has been held every January since 1973. The St. Clair County Right to Life Chapter has been operating since 1982.
