(AP) - Several dozen people have gathered outside of a Planned Parenthood health center in Los Angeles protesting the group's federal funding.

About 50 people prayed, marched and chanted Saturday morning outside Planned Parenthood's Van Nuys Health Center in the San Fernando Valley.

Some held signs that read: "Pray To End Abortion" and "Defund Planned Parenthood." They rallied in front of the health center located in a strip shopping center along the busy six-lane Van Nuys Boulevard.

In Northern California, more than 100 abortion-rights activists dressed in pink hats and coats rallied along the sidewalks outside of a Planned Parenthood center in Roseville. They unfurled a large banner and chanted "Women's rights are human rights!"

Several additional gatherings were also planned at other Planned Parenthood locations across California.
