Hundreds take over downtown Reno to protest overturning of Roe v. Wade

1 min read

The overturning of Roe v. Wade on Friday drew a massive crowd to downtown Reno. Hundreds gathered by 7 p.m. at the Bruce R. Thompson U.S. Courthouse and Federal Building.

The crowd grew so large, people spilled onto South Virginia Street. A single megaphone was not enough for speakers to cut through loud chants by the crowd.

Numerous passersby honked, screamed and chanted in support of those protesting what they said was a devastating decision by the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn the 50-year ruling that paved protected the right of women to get an abortion.

Conservative justices determined there is no federal constitutional right for an abortion – states, such as Nevada, can maintain abortion protections. But after the ruling, some states, like Missouri, immediately declared abortion illegal.

People across the country were outraged by the Supreme Court decision.
