Protestors gathered in Springfield’s downtown square Friday night to show opposition to the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade — and the resulting Missouri “trigger law” that banned abortion in the state.
The protest was organized by the Party for Socialism and Liberation and began at Park Central Square followed by a march to the federal courthouse.
Approximately 300 people listened to speakers and chanted slogans supporting women’s right to choose and opposing the Supreme Court’s decision.
