As organizer Carmen Terrazas said: I know that we have many Pro-Lifers here in Grant County, and in the surrounding areas. We need you ...Grant County men, woman and children, to come and be part of this pro-life movement! Please join us at our Pro-Life Rally on Saturday, June 9 at 11 a.m., between the Walmart Parking Lot and Hwy 180. Let us help one another in Promoting Life and helping to save lives! You see .. . . abortion destroys both lives - those of the unborn and those of mothers that have had an abortion. It also affects those of us that have had any part in promoting abortions. By attending these Rallys, it will help you to carry that heavy burden that you have had to carry, many times alone. You are NOT alone! We are here to help you in helping both lives - the unborn and You. Thank you!!! We hope to see you at the rally."
