DOWNTOWN — A crowd of nearly 500 area residents turned out Saturday for the annual ProLife Rosary procession and march, organized by the Cincinnati ProLife Committee.
The march falls just before the 40th anniversary of the Supreme Court’s landmark ruling in Roe vs. Wade. The 7-2 vote on Jan. 22, 1973 legalized abortion across the nation.
This is the 29th consecutive year for the anti-abortion procession through Cincinnati’s streets.
“There’s nothing more heroic than saving a child’s life,” said Father William Jenkins, of Immaculate Conception Church in Norwood, to the crowd gathered at Cincinnati City Hall by 11 a.m. Saturday. “You are all heroes here today,” Jenkins added. “You are here to save lives. God bless you for that.”
