Efforts are underway in Youngstown to join a nationwide demonstration in support of abortion rights this weekend.

Grassroots activist organization Women's March, is planning “Bans Off Our Bodies” demonstrations around the country this Saturday, May 14th, including a rally on the Mahoning County Courthouse steps from 1 p.m. until 2:30 p.m.

The events are being planned in the aftermath of a leaked U.S. Supreme Court draft opinion indicating that the landmark Roe v. Wade abortion-rights decision may be overturned.

The local effort is being organized by the Steel Valley Reproductive Justice Coalition which says on its website that abortion is a private decision between a person and their physician.

The justices are not expected to issue is official ruling in the pending case until June.
