2017 Roe v. Wade Memorial Rally and Walk for Life, January 15

It’s hard to believe the last Roe v. Wade Memorial Rally and Walk was almost a year ago! Last year, we endeavored to have a strong showing of Orthodox Christians in attendance and we were blessed with a really good turnout! We created a few Orthodox Christians for Life banners and they were impactful in bringing us together in solidarity with our fellow advocates for the Sanctity of Life. Check out the photos!

This year, we hope to have an even greater Orthodox Christian presence for the 2017 Roe V. Wade Memorial Rally and Walk hosted by Oregon Right to Life.

Please join us on Sunday, January 15th at 2:30 pm at Oregon Convention Center. Look for the large “Orthodox Christians for Life” banners and make a stand with us in support of those who cannot speak for themselves!
