Pro-choice advocates call on lawmakers to protect abortion rights
The Supreme Court is considering a challenge to Roe V. Wade after half a century. Pro-choice avocates with the Party for Socialism and Liberation gathered at the state capitol, calling on Utah lawmakers to take action to protect abortion rights.
Protest organizer Denise Weaver says they are demanding “that the Democrats who have the power in the House, the Senate and the presidency, pass the women’s health protection act so that we can be done with the abortion debate altogether.”
Pro-Life Utah President Mary Taylor says abortion advocates claim a right that infringes on another human being, which is why she believes the nation needs to “find other ways to address those challenges,” rather than banning abortion altogether.
The Supreme Court isn’t expected to make a decision on this case until next year.
