As pro-abortion rallies were held across the country last weekend in response to a Texas law regulating abortion, pro-lifers in several areas also staged protests to counter them.
An Oct. 2 pro-abortion march in Washington, D.C., organized by the Women’s March and Planned Parenthood, also spawned an additional “more than 650 marches in 50 states” such as Texas and Colorado, according to organizers.
Though “Women’s Marches” have been organized since 2017 to advocate for a range of women’s rights issues, the marches this week were largely focused on abortion, following the recent passage of a pro-life law in Texas, and coinciding with the start of a new Supreme Court term in which the court will soon take up a case that many observers are saying could pose a substantial challenge to Roe v. Wade.
In Chattanooga, Tennessee, pro-lifers organized a prayer rally to counter a pro-abortion rally that gathered at a park and marched the streets of the downtown.
