HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Next week marks the 41st anniversary of Roe vs. Wade, the landmark Supreme Court case legalizing abortion.

Friday, pro-life activists gathered for the 15th Annual North Alabama Stand for Life rally. It kicked off around noon at the Madison County Courthouse.

Members said the rally gives them a chance to voice their opposition to abortions in America.

"We're hoping to accomplish several things. We want to look back and memorialize those babies that were killed and we also want to recommit ourselves to stopping the killing and seeing all the abortion clinics close," said Father James Henderson.

Keynote speakers included a Holocaust survivor and Congressman Robert Aderholt.
