After the U.S. Supreme Court made the decision to overturn Roe v. Wade on Friday, thousands of people in New York City organized events and protests in opposition to the ruling.
The largest of these was in the city’s Washington Square Park, where thousands flocked to the area carrying signs and chanting about a woman’s right to abortion. The New York Post estimated that 17,000 people were in the crowd.
A prominent chant and policy proposal protestors called for was the abolition of the Supreme Court itself.
