JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) – Several local organizations in support of reproductive rights will gather for an Abortion Freedom Fighters Rally on Saturday, October 2 from 1:00 p.m. until 2:00 p.m.
The Abortion Freedom Fighters Rally is being hosted in conjunction with the Capital City Pride festival at Smith Wills Stadium on Lakeland Drive.
The rally is being held to defend reproductive rights and support Roe v. Wade. On December 1, 2021, Supreme Court of the United States will hear arguments in Dobbs v. Jackson Women Health Organization, in which the Center for Reproductive Rights is challenging a ban on abortion at 15 weeks of pregnancy.
