More than a dozen anti-abortion activists gathered near the entrance of Planned Parenthood of Collier County in Naples on Monday afternoon.

The group held signs, carried rosary beads and recited prayers in front of Planned Parenthood to protest the second anniversary of the health center performing abortions.

JoAn Carter, an anti-abortion activist from Naples, called the group “sidewalk witnesses,” and said they stand in front of Planned Parenthood every week, not just to protest abortion, but also to let people passing by know that abortions are performed at the Naples facility.
