“On the 50th anniversary of the landmark Roe v. Wade decision, demonstrators rallied for abortion rights protections across the country Sunday, led by a national demonstration in Madison, Wisconsin – a location reflecting the shift in focus on reproductive rights at the state level. Abortion rights activists have marched on Jan. 22, called Roe v. Wade Day, each year since 1973, when the Supreme Court decision first granted federal protections for abortion rights. But Sunday, activists are also mourning the ruling after it was overturned last year. … Meanwhile, tens of thousands of anti-abortion protesters celebrated the overturn of Roe v. Wade in events over the weekend, including the annual March for Life on Friday with the theme ‘Next Steps: Marching in a Post-Roe America.'” (01/22/23)
