March over bridge shows pro-life support

Amber Beckham Bradford and Congressman Mike Johnson

By Paige Nash

Third-term congressman representing the 4th District of Louisiana Congressman Mike Johnson visited Webster Parish last Friday. He was in attendance at a Customer Appreciation Fish Fry hosted by Hercules Ag & Outdoor where he had the opportunity to catch up with locals and fellow elected officials. 

Part of his time back home was also spent at the Annual Northwest Louisiana Life March. The march was held on Saturday, January 21. This year’s theme was, “Everyone Deserves a Birthday.” 

Pro-life supporters joined Johnson to march across the Texas Street Bridge to Travis Street parking lot located across from the Government Plaza in Shreveport.  

Among those celebrating the reversal of Roe v. Wade was a group from the Seeds Women’s Center, a non-profit organization that provides healthcare, supplies and support for women in the area.  

“It was a great march over the Texas Street Bridge to show support for pro-life,” Executive Director of Seeds Amber Beckham Bradford said. “Seeds passed out 200 bracelets with scriptures on them to show our support and encouragement. We had a small group attend to represent Seeds Women’s Center but have started making plans for next year’s Life March.” 

Seeds is launching a new dad program this April called, “Navigating Fatherhood.” They will be hosting a kick-off event on March 25th from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. at Miller Quarters Park. There will be free hot dogs, bounce houses, door prizes, music and most importantly an opportunity for dads to sign up for this new 12-week class.  

“We are super excited about what God has in store for Seeds in 2023,” Bradford said.
