Although several hundred pro-choice protesters gathered on the LSU campus to shout protests, no violence occurred. “The march went rather well and was relatively peaceful in spite of the protesters,” said MODG junior Kimberly Sellers, who was present at this event. Marchers gathered for an afternoon full of prayer and praise and worship at the conclusion of the march. Governor Jindal lead the prayer rally, saying, “We can’t just pass a law and fix what ails our country. We need a spiritual revival to fix what ails our country.”
