Anti-abortionists gather for annual demonstration

AUGUSTA — About 100 people shrugged off the cold, rain and snow to gather at the Maine State House in a show of opposition to abortion.

The crowd heard from speakers who condemned the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to legalize abortion 25 years ago. Saturday’s annual event was broadcast live on several radio stations.

After the speeches, supporters partially encircled the Capitol in a gesture of solidarity before staging a motorcade around the city.
