Participants in an anti-abortion march gather for prayers at the memorial to the unborn in the St. Joseph Catholic Church Cemetery in Maumee. Sunday afternoon’s service was one of the local events associated with activities across the country to mark the 39th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Roe vs. Wade on Jan. 22, 1973, that women have the right to abortion.
