A number of Bay Area residents and anti-choice activists are expected outside of San Francisco’s City Hall Saturday to take part in the 15th annual Walk for Life West Coast rally.
The event is run by the Walk for Life Organization to commemorate the anniversary of Roe v. Wade and send anti-abortion messages to stand up for the lives of fetuses and their families, according to organizers.
The rally will begin at 12:30 p.m. at the Civic Center Plaza. Participants will then march down Market Street to Justin Herman Plaza.
Seven Catholic Bishops and other clergy from nine different Dioceses are expected to participate.
Last year, organizers said they found it difficult to tell how many people came out but they estimate 50,000 people showed up including counter demonstrators.
