The Maine Right to Life Committee will hold its annual Hands Around the Capitol Rally and March in Augusta on Saturday, January 14. The event is held to publicly recognize and mourn the Supreme Court’s decision of Roe v. Wade. This year marks the 44th anniversary of the decision. Since that fateful day, over 59 million innocent, precious babies have been aborted in the U.S. The day will begin with a Mass, celebrated by Bishop Robert P. Deeley, at 10 a.m. at St. Mary of the Assumption Church on 41 Western Avenue. At 11 a.m., participants will gather in the gym of St. Michael School on 56 Sewall Street for a rally featuring Bishop Deeley and prominent pro-life speakers. The march to the Capitol building will begin at 12:15 p.m. Upon arrival, those gathered will hold hands while the Capitol bell rings 44 times, representing the years since Roe v. Wade was enacted. For more information, contact Teresa McCann-Tumidajski of the Maine Right to Life Committee at (207) 782-0101 or mrlc@MaineRightToLife.com.
