Cutting the cord: NYC grassroots activists sever ties with fellow abortion rights group in Roe v. Wade reversal dispute


Several abortion rights organizations are at each other’s throats following Friday’s mass protests, citing claims that one group is doing more harm than good.  

Thousands took over the streets on June 24 in protest of the Supreme Court of the United States’ decision to overturn the landmark Roe v. Wade ruling. Pro-abortion activists have unified their collective fury in the wake of the announcement, and the leaked draft opinion in May which foreshadowed Friday’s decision.

However, on Saturday, NYC for Abortion Rights—a grassroots pro-abortion organization—released a statement denouncing fellow protest group “Rise Up 4 Abortion Rights,” demanding the leaders take a step back from the movement.
