On May 2, Politico obtained a draft majority opinion written by Justice Samuel Alito that the Supreme Court would overturn Roe v. Wade.

The case affirmed the legality of a woman’s right to abortion under the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution in 1973.

Since this information was leaked, demonstrations have taken place in the United States. These are some of the various May 14 rallies.
