Rep. John Ahern, (center with back to the camera) addresses the March for Life rally on the north Capitol steps Tuesday.
OLYMPIA -- A couple of inches of sloppy snow did not keep pro-life groups from participating in the annual March for Life this afternoon.
The event featured speeches from several legislators, including Sen. Mike Padden, R-Spokane Valley, and Rep. John Ahern, R-Spokane.
Ahern asked demonstrators to support a bill he has introduced that would require any woman seeking an abortion to be shown a sonogram of the fetus.
Washington State Patrol officials estimated the crowd at about 450, which is down from some previous years with better weather.
