Pennsylvania Attorney General holds rally in Philadelphia to 'protect abortion rights'
PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) — More than a hundred people rallied at the National Constitution Center Saturday to protest the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe V. Wade, eliminating the federal constitutional right to an abortion.
“In the midst of a very dark Friday, I’m thrilled to know there is a glimmer of hope,” she said as she stumped for Josh Shapiro, Pennsylvania’s current attorney general. He is running on the Democratic ticket for governor.
“I trust the women of Pennsylvania to make decisions over their own bodies,” Shapiro told the crowd.
Shapiro said he’ll protect abortion rights in Pennsylvania, while his Republican opponent, Doug Mastriano, has said he’ll make abortions illegal with no exceptions.
“It is clear that more and more issues will likely be coming to the states in future years,” said Shapiro.
