Right to Life rallies, marches and activities

The Elkhart County Right to Life will hold its third annual Rally and March for Life on Saturday, Jan. 11, at 12 p.m. in the Lerner Theater, 410 S. Main St., Elkhart.

Angela Minter will be the keynote speaker.

Minter is a born again Christian and the wife of her high school sweetheart, Parnell. They have enjoyed over two decades of marriage and are blessed with three wonderful children. Angela and Parnell also lost two pre-born babies to abortion while in their teens. They bear the scars of abortion, which only heightens Minter’s commitment to pre-born babies, their parents and families. Minter discovered later in life that her parents had attempted to abort her.

Her story is one of forgiveness and healing through Christ. Minter is the founder and executive director of Sisters For Life. Sisters For Life is a Christian, non-profit organization based in Louisville, Ky., and is inspired by God to take a holistic approach in advocating for pre-born babies, and mothers and fathers that are faced with an unplanned or crisis pregnancy. They are also advocates for God’s family values and believe God has a good plan and purpose for every life and family. Sisters For Life’s goal is to serve and assist them in fulfilling that plan.

Testimonies from the “Silent No More Awareness” members will be included.

The march will follow the rally.

Minter will also speak at the 40th annual Fort Wayne March for Life on Saturday, Jan. 18, beginning at 12 p.m. at the University of Saint Francis Performing Arts Center, 421 W. Berry St.

After the rally, attendees will march through downtown Fort Wayne and conclude at the Federal Building to hear Silent No More Awareness Campaign post-abortion testimonies.

The Knights of Columbus will sponsor a bus trip to the 41st National March for Life in Washington, D.C. Pro-lifers will depart from several locations around Indiana for Washington, D.C., for the national march. Non-members are welcome on this trip.
