Large crowds marched through the streets of New York City on International Women’s Day, to protest in favour of abortion rights, in response to a forthcoming supreme court decision.
This footage, filmed by Twitter user Rise Up 4 Abortion Rights on March 8, shows protesters chanting “we must decide our fate” and “abortion stays legal” as they march down East 14th Street.
The Dobbs v Jackson Women’s Health Organization case, which is currently before the Supreme Court, could lead to weakening or overturning the landmark 1973 ruling, Roe v Wade, which legalized abortion in the US.
The Supreme Court is expected to rule on the case by July. Credit: Rise Up 4 Abortion Rights via Storyful
