Thousands Expected To Rally Across US For Abortion Rights Today

New York:

Thousands of activists are gearing up to take to US streets Saturday in a national day of action calling for safe and legal access to abortion.

The planned nationwide demonstrations are a response to leaked draft opinion showing the United States Supreme Court's conservative majority is considering overturning Roe v. Wade, a landmark 1973 ruling guaranteeing abortion access nationwide.

"We're done with attacks on abortion. We're marching TODAY to make our voices loud and clear," read a tweet from the Women's March, one of the groups behind the Bans Off Our Bodies protests.

Protesters are expected in New York, Washington, Los Angeles, Austin and Chicago, as well as at hundreds of smaller events across the country.

"This Saturday, our elected leaders hear us, Supreme Court justices hear us, companies who've funded anti-abortion interests hear us," said Sonja Spoo, director of reproductive rights campaigns at the advocacy organization UltraViolet, in a statement to AFP.
