A year after Roe v. Wade was overturned, Boston joined cities nationwide in marching for reproductive freedom.
Crowds marched nationwide to protest on the one year anniversary of Roe v. Wade’s overturning. In Boston, the Women’s March participants made their way to the State House to advocate for the re-legalization of abortion in the United States.
This Sunday also marked the 50th anniversary of the landmark Supreme Court case. National organizers convened in Madison for this year’s march, dubbed “Bigger than Roe.”
Boston protestors held signs with messages like “my body, my choice” and “abortion is health care.”
Multiple speeches were given, including from Boston City Councilor Gabriela Coletta, who was recorded saying “when we say abortion is health care, this is what we mean and we meant it.”
