As Roe v. Wade marks 50th anniversary, advocates push further

Crowds are expected to gather this weekend for a march dubbed “Bigger Than Roe” in support of reproductive rights. The gathering on Roe v. Wade’s 50th anniversary comes as advocates feel mixed emotions about the future of abortion access.

The background: The Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization decision in June 2022 that overturned Roe v. Wade devastated abortion access in large swaths of the country. Abortion clinics in restrictive states began to shutter almost immediately. People seeking abortion care were forced to travel across state lines. And in states where abortion remains legal, providers were quickly overwhelmed by patients.
