DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

Anti-abortion demonstrators turned out Sunday afternoon for a nationwide event called Life Chain.

People gathered along designated highways and roads throughout the US, holding signs and crosses, protesting abortion.

In Dubuque, nearly 300 people stood along US Highway 20. Supporters from Dubuque County Right to Life and local churches were among those at the Life Chain event.

Steve Brody is the executive director of Dubuque County Right to Life. He said people showed up at Dubuque's event from all over the tri-states area.

"Pro-life is throughout the United States and not just in the metropolitan areas and the larger towns, but in the small towns as well," he said.

Other tri-states gatherings took place on Highway 20 in Elizabeth, Illinois and Dyersville.
