Pro-lifers vigil for the unborn

Posted: Updated:
JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Candles lit the night sky Saturday evening at the state capital in support of pro-life efforts in the state.

More than 200 people attended the 25th Annual Candlelight Prayer Vigil for the unborn.

Participants stood in silence and prayed as nearby church bells tolled.

The activities began with a program inside the capital then concluded with the outdoor tribute.

Pro-life Mississippi organizers say they act on behalf of those who cannot speak for themselves.

Sunday marks the 39th anniversary of the landmark Roe versus Wade supreme court case that gave women the right to choose.
