Marching for Life in Berks

READING, Pa. -

Hundreds of people gathered in Berks County Sunday afternoon to march for life.

The group walked for about two miles from Berks Catholic High School to Planned Parenthood in Reading.

They carried yellow balloons and 144 wooden crosses--they say--to symbolize how many babies are killed by abortion in an hour.

Organizers tell 69 News they were marching to raise awareness about the importance of life.
