On this Ash Wednesday, dozens of pro-life supporters started an annual protest against abortion.

Many stood outside of Planned Parenthood on Wednesday morning.

The protest is part of the 40 Days for Life event.

Protesters began by launching pink and blue balloons representing babies aborted during the last year.

Planned Parenthood does not do surgical abortions but it does give the "Morning-After" pill.

The 40 Days for Life protest continues through April 17th.
