Abortion rights demonstrators in Midtown picket St. Patrick’s Cathedral and Federalist Society meeting


A lengthy Midtown protest on Wednesday night proved that the rage over the Supreme Court’s reversal of the landmark Roe v. Wade ruling on abortion rights continues to boil with intense heat.

The June 29 demonstration saw an angry, demonstrative crowd bearing protest signs and unbridled contempt during their picket outside St. Patrick’s Cathedral, and later the University Club of New York, where the arch-conservative Federalist Society met.

Police had barricaded St. Patrick’s and stood guard in anticipation of the demonstration. The Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), one of the evening’s protest organizers, explained they picketed the 164-year-old religious site, as well as other conservative organizations, due to their alleged support for overturning Roe v. Wade.
