Community Stuff – Blairsville, Georgia
Pro-life supporters are expected to gather Friday at Liberty Plaza to take part in a memorial event remembering the more than 62 million innocent children killed by abortion since it was legalized in 1973.
Sponsored by Georgia Right to Life (GRTL), the event will feature pro-life activist Jennifer McCullough as the guest speaker.
Founder of Atlanta-based “Girls Like Us,” McCullough focuses on helping women find healing after an abortion. She uses her own abortion story to raise awareness about the profound and detrimental effects of taking the life of a precious gift from God.
This year’s event occurs during GRTL’s 50th anniversary. “It’s been an amazing journey,” Davis said. “For the last half century, GRTL has never wavered from its mission of working on behalf of all innocent human life.”

The National Suicide Hotline Designation Act, signed into law in 2020, authorized 988 as the new three-digit number for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. All telephone service providers in the U.S. must activate the number no later than July 2022; however, many providers will choose to implement the service sooner.
Once a Veteran's telephone service provider makes 988 available, Veterans can use this new option by dialing 988 and pressing 1 to contact the Veterans Crisis Line.
