Pro-Life Crowd Marches on 41st Anniversary of Roe v. Wade Ruling

Created: 01/22/2014 5:51 PM WDIO.com

Forty-one years ago, a U.S. Supreme Court ruling made abortion a legal right.

That decision brought a crowd of at least 30 people to march in front of the Building for Women in downtown Duluth - a place where services include abortions.

Sarah Winandy, with Pro-Life Ministries of Duluth, said the fact that so many people showed up in the cold is a great statement.

"This just shows that peoples' hearts are broken for what abortion does to the baby and to the mother and to the father," she said.

The Building for Women sits across East 1st Street from the Women's Care Center - a pro-life facility that opened in the spring of 2013.
