Counter-demonstrators were also present at both of the rallies this Saturday.

Amy O’Donnell with Texas Alliance for Life says members with the organization have been present at similar rallies from the Texas capitol to Washington D.C. O’Donnell said the organization has also been preparing in the event that the Supreme Court final decision is announced in the coming weeks.
