Twenty-three area residents representing the North Adams Chapter of Mass. Citizens for Life attended the Jan. 22 March for Life in Washington, D.C.

The annual event marked 41 years since the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision in 1973 legalized abortion. The speakers at this year’s March focused on adoption as an alternative to abortion.
