But several hundred more - organized by ProKzoo - came out in support of Planned Parenthood.

Federal dollars don't pay for abortions, but the organization is reimbursed by Medicaid for other services, including birth control and cancer screening.

On Long Island, small groups of demonstrators gathered outside clinics in Hempstead, Smithtown and Patchogue for about an hour and a half. Some prayed while Planned Parenthood volunteers stood by, ready to escort patients.

The event was pretty civil, which was a concern for both sides due to the passion felt by people on both sides of the issue.

"That's what Planned Parenthood does", she said.

Vice President Mike Pence has always been an ally to anti-abortion groups and last month became the most senior government official to ever speak at the March for Life, an annual anti-abortion rally which drew tens of thousands to Washington, D.C. "They're making us complicit in what we think is evil".
