CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Back-to-back protests are happening this weekend in Cleveland as supporters of abortion rights take to the streets.

This comes just days after a leaked Supreme Court draft opinion suggested Roe v. Wade will be overturned.

Supporters of abortion rights gathered around 11 a.m. Sunday at Cleveland’s Public Square, following a similar event yesterday.

Attendants were asked by organizers to wear green as a show of solidarity.

Lee Thompson from “rise up 4 abortion rights” told 19 News what this means to her.

“It would be one of the most significant changes in civil rights in this country,” Thompson added.

In other U.S. cities, including Chicago, Atlanta and Houston, protestors have rallied this weekend in favor of abortion rights.
