Millions March Across America to Support Abortion Rights [VIDEO]

The Bans Off Our Bodies protests to support the continuation of legal and safe abortions took place on Saturday afternoon all across the country, with thousands gathering on the National Mall in Washington, DC, and millions more participating in cities nationwide.

Spearheaded by the official Women’s March, the May 14th rally marked the end of the second full week since a leaked Supreme Court draft ruling indicated the imminent overturning of the landmark 1973 Roe v Wade decision. The Senate was unable to codify Roe during a rushed vote on Wednesday after Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) sided with Republicans.

“Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Planned Parenthood Action Fund, Women’s March, MoveOn, and UltraViolet have joined with allies across the progressive movement to ensure that millions of people turn out for mobilizations across the country to demonstrate that support for abortion is widely and deeply felt. Together we will send a strong message that abortion access must be protected and supported. We invite you to join these efforts during this moment of crisis. It is necessary that to act now, all across the country, not only to demonstrate that people support abortion access, but to show that we won’t back down,” Women’s March said.

Other groups have announced plans to protest outside the homes of conservative justices on the court Saturday, as they have done for weeks. Ruth Sent Us, a group of grassroots pro-abortion demonstrators, on Friday tweeted a call for protesters to meet near the houses of the “SCOTUS 6,” listing the six conservative justices of the Supreme Court. Despite outcry from members of the GOP and criticisms from a few Democrats, those protests have remained peaceful.
