Pro-life marchers to rally Jan. 11

A pro-life march and rally begun in 1974 and held each year since will take place Jan. 11 in Columbia.

The event is sponsored by South Carolina Citizens for Life. David Barton, a constitutional expert, will speak at the rally and at a banquet the preceding evening.

“We do this every year as an educational event,” said Holly Gatling, executive director of South Carolina Citizens for Life. “The spiritual, social and economic damage to this country caused by legal abortion is unfathomable.”

Gatling said the event has grown from seven people at the first rally to several thousand participants today.
