Roe v. Wade fallout: Pro-choice supporters head to Washington Square Park
New Yorkers, still upset with the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, are expected to descend upon Washington Square Park tonight.
The ruling stripped away women’s constitutional protections for abortions that had been in place since 1973.
Elected officials have made it clear to New Yorkers that abortion will remain available and legal here. Other states are dealing with legal battles and navigating a complicated post-Roe world.
President Joe Biden has voiced his commitment to attempt codifying Roe v. Wade into law.
