44th Walk for Life draws thousands to Nebraska Capitol

44th Walk for Life draws thousands to Nebraska Capitol”

The Lincoln Journal Star reports that thousands gathered Saturday morning at the State Capitol for the 44th annual Walk for Life.

The demonstration is held every January 22 on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the US Supreme Court decision that legalised abortion.

There was a strong police presence at the San Francisco march.

At one point the San Francisco marchers were met by several hundred counter-demonstrators but there was no violence.

The march comes a week after President Trump addressed anti-abortion activists at a Washington, D.C. march.

Speakers took a distinctly religious bent, with some referring to abortion providers as demonic and evil. "They kill innocent, defenseless human beings".

People from all over the West Coast were expected to attend to deliver a message to women that choosing life is better than having an abortion for women and children.

"We're here to proclaim that abortion hurts women". "We are protecting the sanctity of life and the family as the foundation of our society", he said at the rally.
