The cold temperatures weren't enough to stop around 20 people from gathering outside the Planned Parenthood on Peters Creek Road in Roanoke County early Tuesday afternoon.
There was a combination of group and silent prayer.
We asked a protester specifically what the group was praying for. Susan Edwards told us they were praying that the people who work in Planned Parenthood and the mothers that walk inside have a change in heart. Some people were even on their knees directing their prayers in the direction of the clinic.
As the vigil took place, employees inside Planned Parenthood could be seen looking out towards the protesters, who respectfully congregated outside the building on public property.
Edwards held a sign showing that 55 million babies have been aborted in the 40 years since the Roe v. Wade decision.
