The Polk County Christian Coalition will sponsor its 14th annual “Sanctity of Life” march and memorial in downtown Cedartown on Saturday, Jan. 26.
According to organizer Larry Tolbert, the event will begin at 11:45 a.m. with a silent march from the parking lot adjacent to Polk County Farm Bureau and proceed north along Main Street to Polk County Courthouse No. 2.
A formal observance will be held on the steps of Courthouse No. 2 at noon with prayers, scripture reading, reports from local crisis pregnancy centers and the placement of memorial crosses on the courthouse lawn.
The event will be conducted in an orderly and respectful manner in accordance with all applicable laws and regulations, Tolbert said.
The public is invited to attend and participate. The event will be held regardless of inclement weather. Signs are welcome to be carried and displayed along the march route in harmony with the event theme. Elected officials in attendance will be recognized.
“This marks the 40th anniversary of the landmark Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion-on-demand through all stages of pregnancy in all 50 states,” said organizer Larry Tolbert.
“Over 50 million pre-born babies have been lost in America alone. The coalition began the annual observance out of concern in taking a public stand against the practice.”
