SPOKANE, Wash. -

The Abolotionist Society set up a protest outside Coeur d'Alene High School Monday morning.

The group says they are there in an effort to educate young women about abortion. They held up signs and passed out informative pamphlets, targeting young women age 14 to 18. 

The group says young women will be the ones to make the final decision about getting abortions. 

In response to the protests, Coeur d'Alene High School increased their police presence. 

The school informed students and parents that the group would be there, and said they are legally allowed on the sidewalk outside the school. 

The group says they will be there until Thursday when students are entering and leaving the school.
