AUSTIN -- Hundreds of abortion opponents are walking in Austin to a rally at the state Capitol to mark the 40th anniversary of the Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion.
Opponents carried signs Saturday that included an X-ray image of a fetus and questioning why abortion was legal.
Gov. Rick Perry, Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst and Attorney General Greg Abbott - all opponents of the decision in Roe v. Wade - are expected to address the crowd. Also appearing are the Roman Catholic Bishop of Austin, Joe Vasquez, and Texas Alliance for Life Executive Director Joe Pojman.
The event comes a day after a rally at the National Mall in Washington that featured former Pennsylvania U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum. Like Perry, Santorum unsuccessfully sought the GOP presidential nomination in 2012.
