Austin's 'Stand4Life' Comes to Dallas this Saturday
Texas' largest pro-life event is even larger, moving to downtown convention center.
DALLAS, JANUARY 16, 2014 -- The pro-life passion that overtook Austin and led to groundbreaking legislative advancements for women and children last summer will come to downtown Dallas this Saturday, January 18, 2014.  Thousands will take to the streets to 'Stand4Life' in memory of the over 55 million unborn children who have lost their lives since the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade to pray, march and rally for an end to the killing.  

The Dallas March for Life, the largest in Texas, coincides with marches all over the country on or near January 22.  This year, the 10,000 strong Dallas March will be led by a Bikers for Life motorcycle procession.  And in anticipation of increased crowds, the events preceding the March have been moved to the KBH Convention Center in downtown Dallas where the March will originate.  This year's Rally will feature women sharing why they 'Stand4Life', including a woman who suffered the pain of abortion and is now helping others find healing, a birth mother who gave the gift of life through adoption, and the founder of African Americans for Life, as well as prominent religious leaders from Dallas and Fort Worth.
