LAWRENCEVILLE, Georgia, Jan. 18 – Friday, January 22, 2010, marks the 37th anniversary of Roe v. Wade. Since the Roe decision, over 50 million children have died as a result of abortion. Georgia Right to Life (GRTL) is calling for those children to be remembered through their Together for Life Memorial Service and Silent Walk.

This is Georgia’s largest annual pro-life gathering. It is being held on the steps of the Georgia State Capitol in Atlanta, GA.

The Memorial Service, sponsored by Georgia Right to Life begins at 11:30 AM and is followed by a one-mile long silent, peaceful walk through downtown Atlanta.

The featured speakers at this year’s service are Ken Blackwell, former Secretary of State of Ohio and Archbishop Wilton Gregory, of the Archdiocese of Atlanta.

Mr. Ken Blackwell noted, “Abortion is not a wedge issue at all. It is a bridge issue between the parties, between religious and ethnic groups.”

On January 22, 2010, Georgia Right to Life is walking for the civil rights of every unborn child; the right to be valued in law as a person from the earliest biological beginning until natural death.

Over 30,000 abortions are performed in Georgia annually.

Georgia Right to Life promotes respect and effective legal protection for all human life from its earliest biological beginning through natural death. GRTL is one of the numbers of organizations that have adopted Personhood as the most effective pro-life strategy for the 21st century.
