'We're never going back': Protestors descend on Supreme Court to condemn, celebrate possible end of Roe v. Wade

Date:


WASHINGTON – It didn’t take long for the crowds to mass and the passions to surge.

Within hours of a leaked report that the Supreme Court has decided to overturn the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, throngs began to congregate in front of the high court to celebrate and condemn what would be a politically seismic ruling.

The leak involves a draft Supreme Court opinion – not an official ruling – published by Politico that suggests the court is considering a decision to overturn the constitutional right to abortion.

But few issues before the Supreme Court ignite Americans’ passions as much as abortion, and word of the potential ruling was enough to motivate protestors on both sides of the volatile issue to show up at the court as Monday night turned into Tuesday morning.

A pro-choice supporter hold a sign outside of the U.S. Supreme Court on May 02, 2022.

Waving signs that read “Bans off our bodies” and chanting “Hey Hey, Ho Ho –; abortion bans have got to go” several hundred abortion rights protestors descended on the steps of the court. A smaller group of anti-abortion protesters gathered as well.

A line of young women sat in front of the court, holding signs reading “this will kill women” “I wouldn’t exist without abortion” and “we should choose our own destinies.”
