The weather is frigid, but that didn't stop Pro-Life supporters from conducting their own March for Life on the 41st anniversary of Roe v. Wade. The landmark decision made by the United States Supreme Court overrode many state and federal restrictions on abortion in the United States. Since that time, in the United States, there have been roughly 1.21 million abortions per year, roughly 3,300 abortions per day.

The campus event began with a short prayer. The march took place around the mall in the center of campus and concluded with a Mass to pray for the unborn and the dignity of life. The event was sponsored by campus ministry.
