Arkansas Right to Life’s 42nd Annual March for Life this Sunday

by | Jan 17, 2020

The 42nd Annual March for Life, sponsored by Arkansas Right to Life, will be held on Sunday, January 19, 2020 in Little Rock at 2:00 p.m.

The observance is a peaceful and prayerful event that attracts thousands of Arkansans from across the state including churches and families to remember the millions of unborn children who have been killed by legal abortion. The march marks the 47th anniversary of the January 22, 1973, Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion in the United States.

Staging begins at 1:30 p.m. between Battery and Wolfe Streets on West Capitol Avenue behind the Arkansas State Capitol. At 2:00 p.m. Arkansas Right to Life President Andy Mayberry will lead the marchers along with elected officials, invited dignitaries, and others special guests to the steps of the State Capitol for a brief program.

The keynote speaker will be Ryan Bomberger, co-founder of the Radiance Foundation. Ryan has a unique perspective on the innate nature of purpose. His biological mother was raped yet courageously gave him a chance to live and the beautiful gift of adoption. He was adopted at 6 weeks of age and grew up in a loving, multi-racial Christian family of 15. His life defies the myth of the “unwanted” child as he was adopted, loved and has flourished.

Today, he is an Emmy ® Award –winning Creative Professional who founded The Radiance Foundation with his wife Bethany. He is a broadcast media designer, producer, columnist, passionate factivist, international public speaker and author of the powerful book, Not Equal: Civil Rights Gone Wrong.

“Forty-Seven years ago the American public was duped into believing that abortion would only be used in the rarest of circumstances and only in the first few months of pregnancy,” said Rose Mimms, executive director. “But now the veil has been lifted from our eyes as the reality of abortion on demand now includes the killing of newborns and the repeal of any protections whatsoever for the lives of innocent unborn children,” Mimms said.

Other participants in the program will be Reverend Marvin Barham, Pastor of Jubilee Church International in Maumelle and Father Josh Stengel, Pastor of Our Lady of Good Counsel Catholic Church in Little Rock. Music will be performed by Doug and Stephanie Goodman.
