Heavy Protest has broken out across cities in USA after Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade abortion rights.
In the wake of the US Supreme Court’s decision to overturn 1973’s landmark abortion decision Roe v. Wade, people have taken to the streets in protest across the US.
Angered by the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade, people hit the streets for more raucous mass protests against a ruling that almost immediately made access to abortions all but impossible in at least 18 states.
As states began to enact abortion bans and clinics stopped offering the procedure, large crowds gathered in cities including New York, Los Angeles and Atlanta, some jubilant, others dismayed at the decision that stripped away women’s constitutional right to abortion.
The area around the Supreme Court building in Washington, DC, has been packed with throngs of protesters — as well as much smaller counterprotests — since the Supreme Court’s decision. Demonstrators supporting reproductive rights have also come out in force across the country in states like New York, Missouri, North Carolina, Oklahoma, and Michigan.
