ROCKFORD — Abortion rights demonstrators will gather in Rockford and across the country Saturday for a rally in response to a leaked draft opinion that shows the U.S. Supreme Court plans to overturn Roe v. Wade.
The local rally is being organized by Women’s March Rockford, AAUW, the League of Women Voters of Greater Rockford, Winnebago County Citizens for Choice, Rockford United Labor and the NAACP.
They are joining others across the country for a day of action dubbed Bans Off Our Bodies to stand against overturning the landmark 1973 abortion rights decision.
The Bans Off Our Bodies rally is scheduled for 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturday at the Rockford Women’s Suffrage Plaza, 200 Y. Blvd.
