The event, set to take place from noon to 1:00 p.m. at the Ogden/Weber Municipal Building located at 2549 E Washington Blvd. in Ogden, is a stand against the Supreme Court draft opinion that was leaked on May 2.
This particular document suggests that the U.S. Supreme Court could be in favor of overturning the Roe v. Wade case that legalized abortion nationwide in 1973.
As noted by AP Newsroom, “a decision to overrule Roe v. Wade would lead to abortion bans in roughly half the states and could have huge ramifications for this year’s elections. But it’s unclear if the draft represents the court’s final word on the matter — opinions often change in ways big and small in the drafting process.”
According to representatives of Planned Parenthood, the rally was organized because, “The people in your community and across the country deserve the power and freedom to make their own personal reproductive health care decisions.”
