Memphis students join the March for Life in the nation's capital

WASHINGTON (Gray DC) -- Busloads of Memphis students traveled to the nation's capital today for the world's largest pro-life event.

Friday was the 46th annual March for Life and students from St. Benedict at Auburndale High School traveled to Washington, D.C. to make their voices heard.

“I think it’s important to march because each one of us has our own convictions and we should all feel the right to stand up for what we believe in, especially with those beliefs coming from our god," said Sam Baker, a student at St. Benedict.

This is Baker's second year attending the march. He says they might not be able to change everyone's opinion, but he hopes marching will change at least one person's perspective on the issue.

The march began in response to the Supreme Court's Roe v Wade decision and the mission is to one day ban abortion.

Vice President Mike Pence and Second Lady Karen Pence ended up speaking at the event, and President Donald Trump addressed the crowd by video.
