This week will mark the 31st anniversary of the Roe versus Wade Supreme Court decision that gave women the right to have an abortion.

Sunday, several groups and individuals opposed to that ruling were out protesting.

"I'm one of the unborn babies that was saved," said one of the protestors, "My mother brought me into this world. I have children and grandchildren and I thank the lord for that."

"Even though it's cold and it's blustery outside, this cause is just worth it," said Janna Janke, Hope and Pregnancy Resource Center. "The cold is just a minor thing compared to what women go through when they're faced with an abortion."

Janke says their group is not against people who have had an abortion, but they do want to prevent abortions from happening in the future.

Those who support the Roe versus Wade decision say women should have the right to choose what to do with their own body.
