OTTAWA - Putnam County Right to Life will host a pro-life rally this Sunday, Jan. 19, at the Putnam County Court House in Ottawa. The event will begin at 2 p.m. on the front lawn of the courthouse. Following presentations by guest speakers, the group will march down Main Street to the American Legion. The public is invited to take part in this rally.

Fr. Tony Fortman, Glandorf parish and Fr. Mark Hoying, Kalida parish, are taking a group to the March for Life, 2014 in Washington, DC, on Jan. 22. The bus will be leaving from Glandorf St. John's on Jan. 21 at 5 p.m.

The March for Life in Washington D.C. began as a grassroots response of pro-lifers nationwide to Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion throughout the 9 months of a woman's pregnancy.
