Connecticut leaders encourage residents to support pro-choice candidates in wake of SCOTUS decision
Rallies were held across the country this weekend as communities still grapple with Supreme Court’s landmark decision Friday to overturn Roe v. Wade.
Dozens showed up in Norwalk Saturday for a Rally for our Rights event, including Sen. Richard Blumenthal and Mayor Harry Rilling of Norwalk.
Local leaders say Connecticut is a state where abortion rights are protected, but November elections are crucial to making sure women in other states have protection.
Officials asked everyone to make a commitment and write down a promise, whether it's to vote or help others to register to vote. They encouraged everyone to vote for pro-choice candidates in November’s election.
