March for Life coverage in Detroit papers

Both the Detroit News and Detroit Free Press have stories from news services on their web sites.  The article in the Free Press from USA Today includes quotes from prolife Michiganders.

Mary Baxter, 46, came all the way from Grand Rapids, Mich., with her two daughters, Sarah, 18, and Ashleigh, 14.

"We're here today in peaceful protest, just like Martin Luther King," Mary Baxter said. "Life is the first gift we are all given. No one has the right to take that away."

Sarah said she leads a group that stand outside of abortion clinics to protest. Sometimes, that means starting at 5 a.m. before he has to go to school.

"We just stand on the sidewalk and pray," Sarah says. "Sometimes people honk and support but sometimes people even throw cans at us."
