Right to Life supporters emphasize the importance of adoption on the anniversary of Roe vs Wade

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - Today marks the 41st anniversary of f Roe vs Wade, the Supreme Court ruling that struck down anti abortion laws.

Wednesday afternoon in Youngstown, right to life organizers emphasize the importance of adoption, over their traditional anti-abortion message.

"We really want Planned Parenthood to be defunded. Our tax dollars are paying for these abortions and they shouldn't be. They should be helping people get adoptions and stuff like that and get pregnancy help etcetera," said Marti Runyan, Right to Life of Mahoning County.

This year's march comes as justices consider two key cases this term. One dealing with protest zones around abortion clinics and another challenging the Affordable Care Act's contraceptive mandate.
