45th annual Nebraska Walk for Life scheduled for Jan. 26

January 20, 2019

A former employee of Planned Parenthood will be the keynote speaker for the 45th annual Nebraska Walk for Life in Lincoln on Saturday.

Thousands of people typically take part in the walk, which begins at 10 a.m. on the north side of the Capitol.

After a brief program, participants will march seven blocks north to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Student Union, 14 and R streets.

At the Union, information booths, baked goods and beverages will be available before the keynote speech by Catherine Adair. The event is family-friendly.

Adair worked for Planned Parenthood of New England in Boston and witnessed thousands of abortions.

The Nebraska Walk for Life is sponsored by Nebraska Right to Life and was started in January 1974 in response to the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion.
