 NotedDC — Protesters to descend on Washington
by Kelsey Carolan and Elizabeth Crisp - 05/12/22 7:21 PM ET

Thousands of demonstrators are set to march from the National Mall to the Supreme Court this Saturday protesting over the court’s upcoming decision on Roe v. Wade.

Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.), who has spoken openly about an abortion she had as a teenager, plans to address the crowd, a spokesperson told NotedDC.

More than 300 other protests are planned across the country for Saturday, part of the “Bans Off Our Bodies” day of action organized by pro-abortion rights groups.

“We’re going to fight for our lives,” Rachel O’Leary Carmona, the executive director of Women’s March, told NotedDC. “Lives are at stake.”

“The support has been overwhelming,” said Kayla Marquez, associate director of organizing at Planned Parenthood.
