Nellie Gray, founder of March for Life, dies
(AP) – Nellie Gray, the founder and chief organizer of an annual pro-life march in Washington and a key figure in efforts to overturn the Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion, has died. She was 86.
Gene Ruane, an administrator with the March for Life Education and Defense Fund, says he found Gray dead in her Washington home Monday. He says an autopsy is being conducted to determine how and when she died.
The first March for Life was held the following year on the anniversary of the ruling. It’s consistently one of the largest protests of the year in Washington.
