March for Life 2009

Students march for life

Posted: Jan 21, 2009 10:23 PM

A bunch of St. Mary's College and Notre Dame students are on their way to Washington D.C. Wednesday night.

About 200 students piled into coach buses for the ten hour ride to the nation's capital to join more than 200,000 March for Life participants. They'll show their support for anti-abortion legislation in tomorrow's march. Supporters also hope to deter President Obama from signing the Freedom of Choice Act, which pro-choice advocates say will strengthen abortion rights.

"Knowing that we are the voice for people who can't speak for themselves; the unborn children, the elderly who people think should be euthanized just because they're old and can't take care of themselves. We're fighting for people who don't have a voice," said Kelly Gasior who's going to March for Life.

Most of the students will return to campus Thursday night.
