Pro-abortion rights protesters marched in downtown Denver, Colorado, on May 3, following the publication of a leaked draft Supreme Court opinion that would overturn the landmark Roe v Wade decision protecting abortion rights.
Footage recorded by Adam Becker shows protesters marching on West Colfax Avenue near the Colorado State Capitol on Tuesday evening. Protesters can be seen carrying signs reading “Bans Off Our Bodies” and “Abortions Forever.” Local media reported that “hundreds of people” turned up for two pro-abortion rights rallies. Protests sprung up across the US after the draft opinion was leaked on Monday. Abortion rights are protected in Colorado by the Reproductive Health Equity Act, which was signed into law on April 4.
