Texas abortion rights organizations will be holding rallies at federal courthouses across the state today (Wednesday, May 3) to protest the U.S.

Supreme Court’s pending decision in Whole Woman’s Health v. Jackson. On Monday, May 2, Politico published a leaked opinion draft by Justice Samuel Alito that shows the court plans to overturn Roe v.

The contents of the opinion, said Wesley Story with Progress Texas, “are jarring and embrace radical legal ideologies that put other privacy rights at stake.” He continued, “We know that attacks on abortion access disproportionately harm Black, Latinx, and indigenous communities, the LGBTQ+ community, young people, those living in rural communities, people with disabilities and people with low incomes.
