Today marks the annual March for Life in Washington D.C. The event commemorates the 41st anniversary of Roe v. Wade. Along with the companion decision of Doe v. Bolton, these cases struck down a multitude of states’ anti-abortion measures.
Locally, a smaller gathering of pro-life activists and supporters congregated on the steps of the Rockingham County Courthouse to remember the day. Attendees spoke, prayed, sang songs, and walked around the courthouse grounds in the frigid weather.
The event lasted about an hour and was also covered by WHSV TV-3.
