More than 300 people turn out for pro-life march in Palmer, Alaska

Published on

On Saturday, January 28, more than 300 individuals participated in what is believed to be the inaugural pro-life march in Palmer. Residents of the Matanuska-Susitna Borough gathered at the downtown Palmer Depot before embarking on a procession through the city’s streets. The marchers prayed for an end to abortion and engaged in a peaceful public demonstration of their belief in the dignity and rights of unborn children.

“Since the Supreme Court’s decision in Roe vs. Wade, hundreds of thousands of pro-life Americans have annually traveled to Washington, D.C., to advocate for the termination of abortion,” a statement from the groups asserted. “However, the distance from Alaska to D.C. is considerable, making it impractical for many Alaskans to undertake such a journey. Therefore, it is more prudent to remain in closer proximity to home and convey the same message: abortion is a heinous act that must be halted.”

The march included a mile-long walk through downtown Palmer, during which participants paused to pray outside the office of abortion doctor Susan Lemagie and also outside Gov. Bill Walker’s Mat-Su offices.
