The Mansfield North Central Ohio March for Life took place Sunday in downtown Mansfield.

More than 100 people marched from First English Lutheran Church to the gazebo in Central Park to protest the 40th anniversary of the Supreme Court decision Roe versus Wade that legalized abortion.

The featured speaker for the event were Father Michael Geiger of St. Joesph Church and Sacred Heart Church, Lisa Rhodes, principal of St. Mary of the Snows School and Pastor Tom Synder of First United Methodist Church in Mansfield.

During the ceremony awards were also presented to the essay contest winners, Avery and Jacqueline Baith and the poster contest winners, Taylor Miller and Morgan Vogt.
