What was originally billed as a walk turned into a rally and then a protest in Salt Lake City on Mother’s Day, when more than 300 people showed up at an event sponsored by the Utah Alliance regarding the current hot button issue of Roe vs Wade and its supposedly pending repeal by the Supreme Court.

As you can see, some of the signs provided some “strong” opinions. A few pro-life folks showed up, but a UHP presence eliminated any potential conflict.
