CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Abortion rights supporters are taking to the streets Saturday in Cleveland and across the country.

The demonstrations come just one day after the United States Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade.

The controversial decision has prompted rallies in several American cities, including some in Ohio.

Here, the Heartbeat Bill took effect Friday after being signed by Gov. Mike DeWine.

It bans abortion after approximately six weeks of pregnancy, or until a heartbeat can be detected.

19 News was there as crowds flocked to Public Square in downtown Cleveland:
