CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Members of West Virginians for Life rallied Tuesday in Charleston and had a candlelight vigil later that night at the Governor's Mansion.

It was in protest of Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin's veto of House Bill 4588 -- the so-called Abortion Bill. It would have prevented abortions after 20 weeks unless there were overriding medical concerns for the mother's health and life.

Organizers of the vigil said they wanted to show Tomblin how they felt about the veto of a bill putting new restrictions on late-term abortions.

Members of West Virginians for Life said the fight on the issue is not over.
