JACKSONVILLE, Fla.-- On the 40th anniversary of the historic case of Roe v Wade, communities across the nation are rallying to end abortion.
In Jacksonville, hundreds marched around the Federal Courthouse downtown. The crowd was made up of priests, pastors, men, women and children. Many prayed the rosery as they walked and help up signs.
Organizers say they hope this demonstration lets women in Jacksonville understand their options. The group will walk around the block for a full hour.
On Jan. 22, 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court, in its Roe v. Wade decision, legalized abortions using a trimester approach.
