These Photos Show Americans Taking To The Streets To Protest The Overturning Of Roe V. Wade

From New York to Los Angeles, protesters voiced their anger at the Supreme Court's decision to roll back nearly 50 years of precedent protecting people's abortion rights.

Following the Supreme Court’s Friday ruling to overturn Roe v. Wade, many thousands of abortion rights protesters took to the streets outside the nation's top court in Washington, DC, and in several cities from New York City to state capitals, including Austin and Phoenix, to speak out against the decision that overruled decades of precedent protecting abortion rights in the US. Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio- Cortez showed her support by joining marchers in New York City, along with New York Gov. Kathy Hochul, while Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren addressed a crowd in front of the Massachusetts Statehouse in Boston. Warren stated, “Roe is dead, but the Supreme Court extremists do not get the last word; we are here because we will make Roe alive again.”
