Pro-lifers Gather at the Capitol for the 2022 Midwest March for Life

Midwest March For Life 2022

This week, nearly 2,000 pro-life supporters gathered in Jefferson City to attend the annual Midwest March for Life. The rally, which was moved into the Capitol building because of rain, featured more than a dozen speakers, including Bishop Shawn McKnight. "We have suffered as a nation in the wake of [the Roe vs. Wade] decision, as it has eroded the culture of life in our society and rejected the many blessings the choice for life secures for us as a people," said McKnight. "It is never good, never just, never charitable, never life-giving to treat an innocent human being as something to be discarded and thrown away."

After the rally, attendees marched down Capitol Avenue and through downtown Jefferson City.
