CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Residents of Corpus Christi were distressed by the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. Protesters made their voices heard and their signs very clear to express their opposition of the decision.

"It's important to get our message out," Gonzales said. "I feel like a lot of us have the same beliefs about the decision that was made, so I felt like we needed to come together."
