Catholic Diocese of Wichita marches for life

WASHINGTON (Gray DC) Thousands descended on Washington Friday for the 46th annual March for Life calling for an end to abortion across the country. The marchers included a group from the Catholic Diocese of Wichita.

More than 700 teens, young adults and their chaperones crowded into 15 buses and made the trek to the Nation’s Capital. The group says they have been preparing for the trip all year long and they are marching to stand up for the unborn.

“We’re very excited to be here. You know, we just want to show the nation that every life matters,” said Bonnie Toomb.

Clint Lange is another leader for the group from Kansas.

“If we don’t have change for humanity, then nothing else matters. We have to have strong morals. Otherwise, this is all for nothing,” Lange said.

Lange says the Catholic Diocese of Wichita wants to see an end to laws that legalize abortion. The March for Life is primarily a pro-life event, marking the anniversary of the 1973 Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade that deemed abortion a Constitutional right for women.
