Hundreds attend abortion rights rally in downtown Spokane
SPOKANE, Wash. — Hundreds of people rallied in support of abortion rights at Riverfront Park Wednesday afternoon.
The “We Won’t Go Back” women’s march was held to protest the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade.
Protesters held signs and chanted “bans off our bodies” and “we will not go back,” among other chants.
“I’m protesting for my daughter, because she now has less rights than I did just a few weeks ago and I’ve been fighting for this ever since I was a girl, and now I’m having to do it all over again, it’s unbelievable,” said Christine Galvin-White, who attended the rally.
The event started at 5 p.m. and went on for at least two hours.
