The Lincoln march is one of hundreds of sister marches taking place in cities around the country. The flagship national mobilization is taking place in Madison, WI.
“Fifty years after the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, a radical right-wing movement hijacked our Courts and eliminated federal protections for abortions. But as the fight turns to the States – they are going to learn that the overwhelming majority of Americans in all States support abortion rights – and women will fight to protect our rights and our lives,” said Rachel Carmona, Executive Director of Women’s March. “We are taking our fight to every state in this country on January 22. Our movement is strong. Our fight is #BiggerThanRoe.”
