Protesters rally outside Schumer’s house, call for decisive action as Roe hangs in balance


With the fate of abortion rights hanging in the balance, protesters gathered outside the home of Brooklyn’s own Sen. Chuck Schumer Wednesday afternoon calling on the Senate Majority Leader to hastily take action to protect reproductive freedom.

About 40 protesters descended on Schumer’s apartment building at 9 Prospect Park West, near Grand Army Plaza, demanding that the powerful Democrat meet the severity of the moment in the wake of a leaked draft opinion by Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito, published by Politico, that would overturn the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that established the constitutional right to get an abortion.
