The prayer service that precedes the annual March for Life event in Washington, D.C., was disrupted Friday by several protesters.

"My body, my choice," yelled one female, which resulted in organizers of the 28th annual National Prayer Service calling for security.

"Bless you," a prayer service attendee said as the apparent pro-abortion protester left DAR Constitution Hall, along the national Mall, where much of the march will take place later today. 

Two other protesters at the prayer service shouted "Abortion is forever." 

Protesters spread out in the auditorium and spoke in intervals, in an apparent attempt to interrupt as many speaker as possible. 

The speakers continued with their remarks amid the disruptions.
