Non-governmental organizations in Nicaragua rallied in the capital on Monday against an anti-abortion bill.
Protesters in cars formed a convoy on the capital's main streets before rallying outside the Supreme Court, demanding the decriminalization of abortion.
Nicaragua's legislature penalized abortion last year, following a campaign by Catholic and evangelical groups targeting private doctors and clinics which prescribe abortion pills or practice abortion operations.
The convoy was led by a truck carrying a sculpture of a crucified woman.
Magali Quintana, of the Feminist Movement, said the protesters were appealing to the conscience of the Supreme Court in a bid to persuade it to declare the new law unconstitutional.
She called on the court to act responsibly, as to allow such a law to come into effect would mean condemning women to death.
The march was also backed by the Nicaraguan Human Rights Center and the Nicaraguan Gynaeco-Obstetrics Association.
