New Yorkers responded with unbridled furor Tuesday to the apparently leaked draft suggesting the U.S. Supreme Court is about to overturn the landmark Roe v. Wade decision on abortion.
Thousands of fuming New Yorkers descended upon Foley Square on the evening of May 3 with contempt for lawmakers who could be set to send abortion rights back to the dark ages. Decrying the move many are calling a human rights violation, protesters roared at legislation that could bring back-alley abortions back to the forefront.
Demonstrators began filling in just before 5 p.m. with only one thing on their minds: How is this happening?
Emma moved from Canada to the United States in 2016, and since then she has noted freedom after freedom, has been slowly taken away. However, the news of Roe v. Wade being overturned upset her so much so that she walked for three hours from Uptown Manhattan down to Foley Square so that her voice could be heard.
