The Arkansas City March for Life will be at noon Jan. 23 and anyone who wishes to march is welcome to join.

The march will begin at the corner of Adams Avenue and Summit Street.

Signs will be available for those who wish to carry them.

Attendees will march north on Summit Street to Central Avenue, then west to the City Hall building, located at 118 W. Central Ave.

After reaching City Hall, Ryan Whitley will speak. He is the new pastor at Northside Baptist Church.

Jan. 22 is the 44th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, a landmark Supreme Court decision that overturned a Texas interpretation of abortion law and made abortion legal in the United States.

Since 1974, the March for Life has been a yearly event for pro-life advocates to participate in as a peaceful protest against abortion.
