More than 40 people stood at the Sportsplex parking lot entrances Sunday evening holding signs proclaiming their right to choose.

The rally was in response to a presentation by pro-life, anti-abortion speaker Denise Mountenay, which was scheduled for 7 p.m. at the Sportsplex.

The protesters arrived early and held their signs up as cars drove into the parking lot.
