Thousands gather for pro-life rally

Posted: Updated:

Thousands converged on the steps of the state capitol, Saturday for the Texas Right to Life Rally.

Pro-life marchers walked down Congress Avenue through downtown to the capitol steps.

When they arrived, there was music, and many speakers, including Governor Rick Perry.

Perry told the crowd..."America is 'lost' under the rule of roe v. Wade." The governor also said that he's going to continue to fight and push for legislation to make it harder for women to get abortions.

"In 2011 we passed and I'm proud to say that I signed a law that prohibits a mother from having an abortion without first having a sonogram. We believe that with all of our hearts that unborn children deserve the respect and recognition before their lives are tragically cut short."

Planned Parenthood recently released the following statement in regards to the 40th anniversary of roe v. Wade:

"For 40 years, access to safe and legal abortion has been the law of the land. A majority of Americans oppose efforts to overturn roe v. Wade, and in November they voted to protect a woman's ability to make her own personal medical decision without interference from politicians,"
