Abortion rights activists protest in Ohio

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Supporters of abortion rights stood on the state capitol steps in Ohio. On Thursday the legislature prepared to vote on the state's two-year operating budget.

The crowd was protesting measures in the budget which they say unfairly restricts abortions.

An opponent of abortions defended the budget, calling it a reflection of recent elections. 

The protests were centered around the budget's defunding of Planned Parenthood.
