Pro-choice demonstration ahead of election season
Rehoboth Beach, Del. – In Rehoboth Beach a pro-choice protest took place earlier today.
We spoke with organizers of the event who tell us that the protest comes following the overturn of Roe v. Wade. They say its important to put on events like this to encourage supporters of Roe v. Wade to keep fighting. At the event community members got a chance to speak and share their thoughts. They tell 47 ABC they picked the time to do this now ahead of the voting season to make an impact.
“To show others, the people that are against abortion to stand up and let them know it’s not going to be as easy to keep it that way2.11 long term and to have people more involved in politics also to let younger people know how important it is to vote and we do have a word, there is something we can do,” says organizer, Ronnie Elliott III.
Organizers say they don’t know what’s next after the demonstration. But their biggest fear is that the supreme court will come after LGBTQ rights as Justice Clarence Thomas suggested such cases be reviewed after Roe was overturned.
