LITTLE ROCK, AR (KAIT/KARK) -

On Saturday, a large group gathered in Little Rock for a women’s march. The next day a much different group stood on the capitol steps.

The 30th March for Life event brought hundreds of people to the Arkansas State Capitol in downtown Little Rock.

According to KARK-TV, the Arkansas Right to Life sponsors the event.

The group wants Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion, to be overturned.

Supporters on Sunday told KARK they won’t stop marching until it happens.

They’re hopeful President Donald Trump will bring them closer to their goal.

    Thanksgiving is a time to be with loved ones and enjoy good food, but since that is not an option for everyone, members of the Jonesboro community came together to make sure as many people as possible were fed.
