Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Streets in downtown Fargo shutdown early Sunday afternoon as pro-life supporters sang out against abortion. This, just months after North Dakota passed some of the most strict anti-abortion laws in the country.
Parishioners of St. Mary's Cathedral say it's not enough. It’s a fierce line between those who believe in it and those who don’t. Those against abortion say they don’t plan on giving up anytime soon.
Each year, for the past 21 years, this St. Mary's man has walked.
Timothy Holland – Pro-life: "It's like protecting your own child."
Slowly, and peacefully, Timothy Holland protests against abortion.
Holland: "if you see what happens when a child is torn apart in the womb, it makes your heart cry out."
He and hundreds, hundreds more.
Tamara Splonskowski- Pro-Life: "I love life and I love people."
Just like Tamara who has made the choice to be pro-life.
Splonskowski: "Because I believe every life is worth living. And I also know and believe that we all deserve a chance to live life."
"This is a really hot topic in North Dakota, right?"
Holland: "It's a hot topic throughout the world right now."
And the nation has been staring our state down as the battle continues.
The Red River Women's Clinic couldn't comment today.
But for months Tammi Kromenaker has played defense.
Tammi Kromenaker – Red River Women’s Clinic: "We have women who come in and are victims of sexual assault, rape, incest. That's not going to end abortion; it's going to end safe abortion. Women absolutely need to standup, talk to their legislatures, vote."
Multiple laws have passed in North Dakota in an effort to ban abortion.
Including one which a federal judge blocked back in July - claiming it's unconstitutional.
But despite the step back,
Holland: "It will be done eventually"
The parish plans to keep on walking forward.
Holland: "The work will be done when children aren't killed anymore."
People from St. Mary say it looks like it might be a long journey before anything gets sorted out.
