SPOKANE, Wash. — A pro-life rally took place in downtown Spokane Saturday afternoon.

Hundreds of pro-life supporters gathered in front of the Great Northern Clocktower in downtown Spokane to celebrate the possible end of federal abortion protections guaranteed by the Roe V. Wade decision.

Many of the protesters were singing worship songs at the rally. Groups that attended say firearms are rights given by God.

They also say they denounce Patriot Front, a white nationalist group that was involved in the arrest of 31 of its members in Coeur d’Alene last weekend.

The event was organized by former Washington State representative Matt Shea and the far-right Spokane group “Church and State.”
