DES MOINES, Iowa -- Political candidates have taken their turn campaigning around the state, and now their spouses are out fighting for change too.

Janet Huckabee campaigned at the March For Life rally at the Iowa State Capitol on Saturday.

Huckabee says she and her husband, Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee, are 100 percent pro-life.

The annual event is aimed at educating others on the negative effects of abortion and to encourage other options, like adoption.

The event's organizers say having the support of Huckabee helps their campaign efforts.

“She came to the march, she attended and walked the march with us and that is a huge affirmation to us that we are moving in the right direction," Jenifer Bowen said. "The March for Life had to start somewhere, and we are starting and we are gaining national attention.”

More than 1,000 people attended Saturday’s rally.
