BLOOMINGTON - Forty-five Central Catholic students are back in class this week after a Washington, D.C. trip to 'March for Life.'
The event Friday marked the 40th anniversary of the Roe vs. Wade U.S. Supreme Court decision. Student Keira Kelly said she thinks people take life for granted.
"It just really hits me hard to think about all the poor, innocent babies that don't have an opportunity at life like we do," Kelly said. "I don't think that many people see how big of an issue it is."
An estimated 650,000 people marched this year.
Student Tim Blaser said the march drew hundreds of thousands of people, but didn't get equal media coverage.
"I feel like our generation isn't as informed so they just kind of go along with everyone else or don't truly stand up for what they believe in for fear of being judged by others," Blaser said.
