Members of Wyandotte Right to Life took their message to the streets of Wyandotte on Sunday.
In anticipation of Tuesday marking the 40th anniversary of the Supreme Court Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton rulings, which legalized abortion, more than 40 activists carried signs and prayed the Rosary on Sunday.
Participants walked through the Wyandotte neighborhood from Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Church to the Mount Carmel Cemetery.
Deacon Luis Flores from St. Frances Cabrini Catholic Church in Allen Park led a prayer service at the cemetery chapel. People then went outside to the Memorial Monument to the Unborn for closing prayers.
Now that the local event has been held, busloads of people from Downriver and metro Detroit will be leaving later this week for the 40th March for Life in Washington, D.C. on Friday.
"After the rally on the Ellipse with nationally known speakers, an expected 700,000 people will march down Constitution Avenue to the Supreme Court," said Deborah Bloomfield of Wyandotte. "Many will then visit their congressmen and senators to express their desire for legal protection for the unborn."
