Roe v Wade: Women’s March Movement rally held outside Newark City Hall
Rallies were held across the state of New Jersey on Saturday in the wake of the Supreme Court ruling overturning Roe v Wade.
The move ended 50 years of precedent over the right to an abortion across the nation.
Many people in Newark demonstrated outside of City Hall to speak out against the ruling and to support abortion rights.
Register nurse JoAnne Devine told News 12 she was “gutted” when she heard the ruling.
“My Catholic upbringing instilled a sense of social justice in me and overturning Roe versus Wade is not justice,” said Devine.
The rally was organized by the Women’s March movement.
