MOUNT HOPE, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Thirty-seven years ago this week, the case Roe v. Wade made abortion legal in the United States.
Sunday, members of the Fayette County for Life group got together in protest of that decision.
On Main Street in Mount Hope, one cross per number of daily abortions in the United States was put up for drivers to see.
"We know the numbers, but even myself today when we were putting them up I had to stop about a quarter of the way in because it was just overwhelming," Lavada Whitt with West Virginians for Life said. "I think it does say something whenever you hear a number then to see what that really looks like when you lay it out in front of you, to get an actual visual of what 3,700 lives would look like, it really makes an impact."
Members of the group say their goal is to educate, assist and support parents thinking about abortion, and the unborn babies they say don't have a choice.
They say they plan to put this display up every year near the anniversary of Roe v. Wade until laws are changed.
