On May 2, Politico obtained a draft of a majority opinion written by Justice Samuel Alito, that the Supreme Court would strike down Roe v. Wade.

The case affirmed the legality of a woman’s right to have an abortion under the Fourteenth amendment to the Constitution, in 1973.

Ever since this information was leaked, demonstrations have taken place across the United States. These are some of the various rallies on May 14.
