Erie residents headed to Washington, DC for the March for Life

Late this evening, four buses filled with Erie area residents will be headed to Washington, DC for the 28th March for Life, which takes place on Monday, the anniversary of Roe v. Wade.

At this time, there are 177 people who will making the trip, nearly double last year's total (95). That number could increase. Several bus seats are still available, and People for Life is accepting last minute reservations. Five have been received so far today.

The marchers will board buses in the St. George Church parking lot on upper Peach St. beginning at 11:00 PM this evening. The buses will depart at 11:30 PM.

We will arrive in DC between 7:30 and 8:00 AM, Monday morning.

The March for Life will begin with a noontime rally at the Washington Monument. After the March, there will be opportunities to meet with Senator Rick Santorum and Congressman Phil English.

The buses will depart from RFK Stadium (our parking place) at 5:00 PM. They will arrive back in Erie at approximately 1:00 AM, Tuesday morning.

People for Life is very encouraged by the increased interest in the March for Life this year. We are especially pleased because our numbers have doubled in spite of a 25% increase in the amount each person was asked to pay for his or her bus seat. The added expense was necessary because of recent price increases by the bus companies.
