WASHINGTON (AP) - The annual March for Life was going on in Washington despite the weather forecast.

The event is held on Jan. 22 every year, the anniversary of the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision by the U.S. Supreme Court which established the constitutional right to an abortion. During the rally being held before the march, participants cheered when a speaker mentioned the “major storm barreling down” on the region.

Participants said it was important to be at the march to show their support, and some participants said they came despite buses being cancelled.

Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina was among those who addressed the crowd.
