In Panama City and across the world people were gathering to take a peaceful stand against abortion Saturday.
A group of about 200 people gathered in front of the Wal-Mart on 23rd Street in the afternoon in what's known as the National Life Chain.
This is the 20th year in a row for the event. Organizers of the Panama City chain said it's an opportunity for them to share with people why they believe abortions are a national tragedy.
Besides holding these sings in protest, the group also spent some time in prayer.
Justin Gagon said, "We're just out here to say a peaceful prayer for all those who cannot defend themselves, unborn children, and also to let mothers who are contemplating some kind of an abortion to just let them know they're not alone they can do it with our help."
The organizers say this is the largest nationwide demonstration they know of and the largest demonstration in Bay County.
