BOSTON — Protesters supporting abortion rights took to the streets of Boston for a second day on Saturday. They expressed their anger over a Supreme Court decision Friday that returned to the states the decision to regulate when or if a woman can get an abortion.
The protesters took to the streets for a march, before rallying at City Hall against the decision to overturn Roe v. Wade which was in place for nearly 50 years.
Those encouraged by the 6-3 decision from the high court told Boston 25 on Friday that it was a long time coming.
Myrna Maloney Flynn is President of Massachusetts Citizens for Life. “It’s the decision we were hoping for. It’s the decision we’ve been working for — for the last 50 years,” said Maloney Flynn.
Those who gathered Saturday said they hope the momentum to fight the decision does not stop, even with protections in place in Massachusetts allowing for abortions to continue, and they demanded Democrats draft legislation to to make sure abortion is federally recognized.
