Supporters of abortion rights flooded state capitols, town squares and courthouses around the country Tuesday to protest a wave of new laws restricting women's access to abortion that have passed in several states.
Dozens of groups, including Planned Parenthood, ACLU, Emily’s List, NARAL Pro-Choice America and the Women’s March, organized more than 400 demonstrations in all 50 states as part of the National Day of Action to Stop the Bans.
"Across the country, we are seeing a new wave of extreme bans on abortion, stripping away reproductive freedom and representing an all-out assault on abortion access," organizers said. “This is Trump’s anti-choice movement… and it’s terrifying, particularly for women of color and low-income women who are most affected by these bans.”
