Roe v Wade: Hundreds descend on Bristol for abortion rights march

‘How can they trust me with a child, but not a choice?’

Hundreds of Bristolians voiced their fury on the recent overturning of the Roe v Wade ruling over the weekend, descending on the city for an abortion rights march.

Angry pro-choice demonstrators gathered at College Green on Sunday afternoon (July 3) before heading to Castle Park.

It comes after the US Supreme Court overturned a ruling which granted the right to abortions for women across the United States. The ruling, which had been made in 1973, has been upheld for almost 50 years.

The decision is expected to lead to abortion restrictions being implemented in roughly half of US states.
