SHREVEPORT, La. - Radio talk show host CL Bryant and adoption documentary subject David Scotton will be among the speakers at Saturday's Louisiana Life March North in Bossier/Shreveport, expected to draw more than 5,000 pro-life marchers.
The Life March North is the second of three similar events being held across Louisiana on three consecutive weekends. Last weekend more than a thousand people marched in downtown Baton Rouge, and next Saturday thousands more are expected for the Louisiana Life March Cenla in Pineville-Alexandria.
Saturday's event includes a pro-life march, which begins at Bossier City's Louisiana Boardwalk, crosses the Texas Street Bridge, and concludes at Shreveport's Festival Plaza, where a program of prayers, speakers and music will be held.
The Life March will begin at 10 a.m. Participants will gather a few minutes before 10 at the Boardwalk, then proceed across the bridge.
A life ministry mobilization area at Festival Plaza will be manned by area pregnancy centers and organizations, and participants can visit the tables before or after the program.
The program also includes Pastor James McMinis of Word of God and the Word of God Worship Team, Kim Banks, Dennis Sims of Ellerbe Baptist Church, and Pastor Brad Jurkovich of First Bossier. Bishop Michael Duca of the Diocese of Shreveport and Pastor Jerry Dean of The Pentecostals of Bossier City will speak on the Bossier side prior to the march.
