March for Life planned Jan. 22 in Brainerd

The Crow Wing County Chapter of Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life will sponsor the annual March for Life on Wednesday, Jan. 22.

Anti-abortion people should meet at 11:30 a.m. at the corner of South Sixth and Oak streets in Brainerd to walk to the Crow Wing County Courthouse.

A short program will be inside the courthouse when the marchers arrive there. Join the participants to support the unborn on the anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court Roe v. Wade decision.

Cars cannot be left at the starting location and must be moved before the march begins.
