US: Teens defend polygamy at Utah rally

Calling their lives blessed, more than a dozen young women and girls from polygamist families in Utah spoke at a rally in Salt Lake City Saturday. They called for a change in state laws and the right to live the life and religion they choose.

Polygamy is banned in the Utah Constitution and is a felony offense. The rally was unusual because those who practice polygamy typically try to live under the radar.

Organizers say the rally drew about 250 supporters to City Hall.

The youths, ages ten to 20, belong to various religious sects, as well as families that practice polygamy independent of religious affiliation. They said they spoke voluntarily.

All of the speakers praised their parents and families and said their lives are absent of the abuse, neglect, forced marriages and other "horror stories" sometimes associated with polygamist communities.
