TULSA, Oklahoma -

The eighth annual Tulsa March for Life got underway at 1 p.m., starting at the Holy Family Cathedral, 122 West 8th Street in Tulsa.  

Organizers say the peaceful, interfaith march and rally celebrates the sanctity of life and is held on the anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade. It's also held to show solidarity with the national March for Life held in Washington, D.C.

Bishop David A. Konderla, Bishop of Tulsa, celebrated a mass at the cathedral at noon. 

Organizers said they marched as a voice for those who have no voice, and a march of peace and love.
