Hundreds "March for Life" in Elkhart

Posted:

Hundreds of people came out for the third annual March for Life event Saturday.

The Elkhart County Right to Life and Holy's Innocent's Pro-Life Action Group sponsored the event.

Supporters gathered at the Lerner Theatre prior to marching.

After hearing from speakers of various anti-abortion groups, those in attendance took to the streets to march.

The march ended at the Women's Care Center.

Elkhart County Right to Life board member, Cindy Robertson has been involved in all three marches and says this one has the biggest turnout of them all.

"I estimate there were about 400 people who attended today and last year we had about half this amount so just very grateful that each year, and this is our third year, the attendance is growing and we hope to have more people next year," says Robertson.

Robertson hopes that the rally will encourage people to educate themselves on the matter of abortion.

No abortions are performed in Elkhart.
