Thousands of protesters at Friday’s rally celebrated the Supreme Court’s decision last summer to overturn abortion rights in the United States, which have been in effect since 1973. At the same time, they demanded that the abortion bans issued by several states should not be restricted. “The right-to-living movement has with the judgment in the case of Roe v. Wade won a great victory, but our work (…) is far from over,” the US broadcaster CNN quoted one of the initiators as saying.

The spokeswoman for the White House said, with a view to the rally on Friday, that the US government under President Joe Biden never tires of pointing out “the constant attacks on women’s right to make their own health decisions” and taking action against them. Biden has strongly criticized last summer’s judge’s decision and made it clear that he would do everything in his power to restore abortion rights nationwide. The decision caused anger and indignation among many Americans; Thousands of people took to the streets nationwide to demonstrate against the decision.
