Stand for Life, Louisiana displays pro-life message
MONROE, La. (KNOE) - Standing up for life. That’s what pro-life supporters participating in Stand for Life, Louisiana did today all across the state. Pro-life supporters gathered on sidewalks near busy areas to share the pro-life message with their community.
Usually, the state would have their annual Louisiana life marches, but COVID-19 caused pro-life supporters to think creatively to still have an event.
After a prayer broadcasted from the State Capitol in Baton Rouge, supporters headed out into the community.
In Monroe, people stood along Louisville Ave. on both sides of the Lea Joyner Bridge sharing their message with anyone who passed by.
Seth Guidry, a ULM student and member of the Catholic Campus Ministry, was one of many people standing up for life.
“We’re out here today because we strongly believe that every person has the right to life whether they are in a womb or not,” Guidry said.
People held up pro-life signs and created human “life chains” standing together. Supporters hoped this would have an effect on drivers passing by.
“Quite simply, I just don’t believe that it makes any sense that a baby can be murdered a day after it’s born. But a day before it’s born, it’s nothing. It just doesn’t make any sense,” Guidry said.
The pro-life supporters stayed on Louisville Ave. for about two hours and told us they received positive responses from people passing by.
