On Monday, May 2, Politico published a leaked draft of the Supreme Court majority opinion in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization that explicitly overturns Roe v. Wade. This is an unprecedented leak from the court that, if true, would reverse nearly 50 years of precedent and explicitly end federal constitutional protections for abortion. Twenty-six states have stated that they will move quickly to ban abortion, meaning 36 million people might live without local access to abortion, denying them the power and freedom to make their own personal reproductive health care decisions.

Planned Parenthood Advocacy Fund of Massachusetts and Valley Women’s March invite the public to join people across the country, in protesting the anticipated repeal of abortion rights, not only to demonstrate that people support abortion access but also that people will not back down when civil rights are threatened. As of Wednesday (5/11), 373 cites and towns had planned protests.
