Several hundred protestors gathered at the Wisconsin Capitol on Saturday to continue protests against the potential overturning of Roe v. Wade by the Supreme Court.
Activists leaders from a number of organizations spoke in favor of reproductive justice, women's rights, trans rights, gender inclusion and more. After the speakers were finished, protestors mingled and spoke with each other.
A small number of counter-protestors - all male and numbering less than a dozen - gathered near the back of the protest. The counter-protestors left after being heckled by reproductive justice protestors.
Protestors were encouraged to write to politicians, spread word to friends and associates and to donate money in favor of reproductive justice organization in Madison.
