‘Hundreds’ rally against abortion restrictions in southern Indiana

Protesters in southern Indiana gathered outside Jeffersonville City Hall on Wednesday, June 29, in response to the US Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade five days earlier. The new ruling would give states the power to place restrictions on abortion, and Republican-controlled legislatures like Indiana are likely to vote to ban the procedure almost entirely. Organizers Kate Jeswin and Evie Alexander were inspired by larger protests in nearby Louisville, Kentucky, where abortion rights are also under threat. According to a local news report, the organizers expected only their friends to go out, but were surprised by the “hundreds” of attendees. Footage shows crowds holding banners reading “Pro Row” and “Abortion Court” and chanting slogans declaring their support for abortion rights. Credit: Ann Moore via Storyful
