Protesters gathered outside of the Massachusetts State House after the Supreme Court’s draft opinion to overturn Roe v. Wade was leaked on May 2, 2022. Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 113, was a landmark decision of the U.S. Supreme Court which protects a pregnant woman’s right to choose to have an abortion without excessive government restriction.
