In honor of the 46th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, pro-life supporters held a rally in Germantown on Sunday.
The Stand for Life rally commemorated the U.S. Supreme Court’s 1973 decision.
Organizers tell Local 24 News the purpose of the rally is to mourn for the 61 million unborn babies who have been aborted since the decision.
“And the good news is that the abortion numbers are dropping. So, the figures are the lowest. The newest figures are for 2015, and they are the lowest since 1973, and the good news is that teen pregnancies are down,” said Kent Pruett, President of the Shelby County Chapter of Tennessee Right to Life.
The group’s long-term goal is to get lawmakers to pass pro-life legislation.
