Hundreds attended a follow up rally to the the U.S. Supreme Court decision on Dobbs v. Jackson Womens Health Organization which overturned Roe v. Wade.

The rally was held at the Old State Capitol on Saturday, July 9. Speakers came from the organizing coalition that included Black Lives Matter Springfield, League of Women Voters of the Springfield Area, Planned Parenthood Illinois, and Resistor Sisterhood as well as other area activists.

Illinois is one of only two Midwestern states that isn’t expected to restrict or ban abortion after the SCOTUS decision. The state also has the most open access between the coasts and political leaders are planning legislation to expand access.
