FORT WORTH, TX (CNN) - A group of anti-abortion activists in Texas are taking their message to young people by staging protests in front of high schools in Fort Worth.

Protesters stop students walking to school to talk and to hand out literature against abortion. Members of the group say they're "preaching the gospel."

But some parents and students say the pictures the group are using to promote their message are inappropriate, and that their approach is too aggressive.

A spokesperson with Fort Worth school district says they can't do anything about it because the group is on a public sidewalk. School officials say they have a right to free speech as long as it doesn't interfere with students' education.

Some parents are circulating petitions to end the demonstrations and are looking into other ways to stop them.
