A “March for Life,” organized by Natrona4Life, was held on Saturday, January 20th. Marchers faced cold weather and the early portions of Saturday’s Winter storm, as they marched around a block downtown.
The event was the first of, what organizers say will be, an annual event.
Natrona4Life is a local Pro-Life advocacy group. They say, in a written statement to media, that 2018 marks the 45th year of legalized abortion in the United States.
Wyoming State Representative Chuck Gray was in attendance and spoke following the march. Also present for the march were women who had chosen to have abortions, and then later regretted the decision; who addressed the crowd with prepared speeches.
Initially the speeches, as well as an invocation, were scheduled to occur before the march, in City Park. However, increasingly bad weather conditions left much of the program to occur afterwards, indoors.
Marchers began at City Park, walking down Center Street, turning east on 6th street, then turning south on Wolcott. The march ended with the participants turning west on 7th street and returning to City Park.
