GRANTS PASS, Ore.- Today around 400 pro-life supporters marched in Grants Pass. Tomorrow is the 45th anniversary of Roe vs. Wade. You'll remember that Supreme Court decision started a national debate that continues today about if and how late in a pregnancy an abortion should be legal.

Today hundreds of people are marching to get their pro-life message across. It was pouring rain, but that didn't stop supporters from marching down 6th Street.

Tiffany Swanson, a pro-life supporter says, "I just really want to instill that in my children and I want people to see that there are women out here that want rights for the unborn and that care about life and children."

Kids, women and men, young and old all walked as one. Folks at the rally say they're defending the unborn.

Swanson says, "I was raised by a single mom and she could've easily back in the 60's or 70's decided not to keep me, but she did and I'm grateful."

This comes one day after a different march in Grants Pass. Supporters at the Women's March were rallying for women's rights including health care and birth control options. A participant told our team it's important for women on both sides of an issue to get involved and have a voice.

With organizers from both rallies calling this weekend a success, the focus is turning to what will happen on the federal level with the shutdown in it's second day.
