Thousands of abortion opponents assembled on Friday for their annual march from the National Mall to the steps of the Supreme Court. During the pre-march rally, Vice President Mike Pence addressed the crowd, promising demonstrators that President Donald Trump would appoint a Supreme Court justice who shared their views. “Life is winning in America,” he said.

Here are some of the signs that the protesters carried.
