Hundreds marched through downtown Los Angeles Saturday afternoon as part of special pre-election edition of the annual Women's March.

They were there to call for the ouster of President Trump and and condemn Trump's Supreme Court pick of Judge Amy Coney Barrett. Her expected confirmation would give the Court a six-justice conservative majority.

Nita Stith of Irvine said it was no use fighting Barrett’s confirmation by a Republican-majority Senate. Her hope was Democrats would turn over the Senate and work to add more justices to the bench.

"What that number is, I don't know," said Stith, "but we can't live with a conservative bench like this."
