Bachmann speaks at St. Paul anti-abortion rally

ST. PAUL — Rep. Michele Bachmann made her first appearance in Minnesota since dropping out of the Republican presidential race, speaking at an annual anti-abortion protest at the state Capitol.

Minnesota Public Radio reports that hundreds of people opposed to legal abortion came by school buses from across the state Sunday to mark the 39th anniversary of the Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion. The rally was sponsored by Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life.

Bachmann predicted to the crowd that next year's event will be a celebration following November elections that she says will end abortion.

She hasn't said if she'll run for fourth term in her congress, representing suburbs north and east of the Twin Cities. In response to a question from a reporter, she says she'll give interviews soon on the subject.
