‘Here Again’: Abortion activists rally 50 years after Rowe

MADISON, Wisconsin (AP) — From beach towns to snow-covered streets, abortion supporters gathered by the thousands Sunday to demand reproductive rights and mark the 50th anniversary of the overturned U.S. Supreme Court ruling Roe v. Wade that established federal protection for the procedure.

Row’s repeal in June unleashed a flurry of legislation in states, dividing them into those that restricted or banned abortion and those that sought to protect access. Inspired by President Donald Trump’s 2017 inauguration amid a national crackdown on sexual harassment, the Women’s March said it refocused on state activism following Roe’s ouster.

“This fight is more important than Rowe,” the Women’s March tweeted. “They thought that we would stay at home and that it would end with Rowe – they were wrong.”

A dozen Republican states have introduced sweeping abortion bans, and several others are seeking to do the same. But these steps were offset by profits on the other side.
