MADISON, Wis. — Protestors gathered on the State Capitol to rally for abortion rights Saturday.
The rally was a part of a nationwide effort known as “Bans off our Bodies.” Organizers estimate that lots of of occasions have been held Saturday from coast to coast.
Planned Parenthood Advocates of Wisconsin organized the occasion in Madison as a response to the leaked Supreme Court opinion that indicated the Court will overturn Roe v. Wade, the landmark determination that cemented abortion rights for Americans.
“Criminalizing abortion in Wisconsin is not the future we want for ourselves, friends, families or communities,” PPAWI president Tanya Atkinson stated. “Today we’re rallying at the State Capitol to call on the state Legislature and those across the country to protect people’s ability to access the health care they need and to say bans off our bodies.”
