According to ARTL President Wayne Mays the march gives Arkansas pro-lifers “an opportunity to participate in a peaceful, prayerful and powerful event that will inspire and renew your commitment to work tirelessly to restore legal protection to the weakest and most defenseless members of our human family, the unborn.”
Participants will march down Capital Avenue to a rally for life on the steps of the State Capital Building. This year’s keynote speaker will be Julie Mayberry, former host of KATV’s Daybreak. The program will also feature Bishop Anthony Taylor, Bishop of the Diocese of Little Rock, and Pastor Doug Jones of First Freewill Baptist Church of Hot Springs.
Organizers expect several thousand to participate this year in what has become the largest pro-life demonstration in Arkansas. I hope you will join me this January 18.
