San Francisco • Thousands of abortion opponents marched Saturday through downtown San Francisco for the 10th annual "Walk for Life West Coast."
The protesters rallied at Civic Center Plaza in front of City Hall before marching down Market Street to Justin Herman Plaza. They held signs that read "Defend life" and "Women deserve better than abortion."
Nancy Castellanos, a 17-year-old high school senior from the Northern California city of Dixon, came to San Francisco with worshippers from St. Peter's Catholic Church, which brought people on six buses. She believes the laws need to change to make it harder to get an abortion.
