Come to 2010 MCCL March for Life!

The following MCCL news release was issued on Thur., Jan. 14, 2010.

Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life (MCCL) will hold the 2010 MCCL March for Life at the State Capitol on Friday, Jan. 22. The purpose of the MCCL March for Life is to commemorate the 52 million unborn babies' lives lost to abortion and to call for legislation to protect all innocent human life, including pregnant women and their unborn children. MCCL will announce its 2010 legislative agenda at the event.

Pro-life Gov. Tim Pawlenty, Norm Coleman and state lawmakers are expected to participate in the brief MCCL program that begins at 12:30 p.m.

Jan. 22 marks the date of the U.S. Supreme Court decisions Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton, which legalized abortion on demand throughout all nine months of pregnancy. Minnesota has lost more than 543,000 lives to abortion since these 1973 court decisions, according to the Minnesota Department of Health.

Each year, thousands of Minnesota citizens march at the Capitol on the anniversary of the decisions, to call for greater protections for unborn children and their mothers, for elderly and handicapped citizens, and for all vulnerable human life. The MCCL March for Life is the largest annual event held at the Capitol.

MCCL urges all pro-life Minnesotans to come to the Capitol on Jan. 22 and speak up for justice for unborn children, pregnant women and all defenseless human beings.

Time: March begins at 12:00 noon; Program begins at 12:30 p.m. on Capitol front steps
Place: State Capitol, 75 Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., St. Paul
