NC ‘March For Life’ brings thousands of pro-lifers to Raleigh…

Excerpt From: News & Observer. Written By: Chris Cioffi.

Across downtown Raleigh from raucous crowds voicing opposition to the inauguration of President Donald Trump, a group hopeful that the Republican will shift abortion policy also gathered Saturday.

The March for Life attracted more than 1,000 people who held signs saying things like “We Vote Pro-Life” and marched on city streets near the legislative buildings. The day also featured speeches and prayers organized by anti-abortion group North Carolina Right to Life in Bicentennial Plaza, and a youth rally and mass sponsored by Raleigh’s Roman Catholic diocese.

One of the speakers, Carol Tobias, 56, expressed optimism about a change in abortion policies under the new Trump administration.

After eight years of “the most pro-abortion president we’ve ever had,” there is renewed hope in outlawing abortions. The president of the District of Columbia-based National Right to Life Committee also spoke in opposition of assisted suicide for terminally ill patients.
