Abortion-Rights Protesters Release Banner During Game at Dodgers Stadium

Abortion-rights activists released a banner during a Mets game at the Dodgers Stadium in Los Angeles, on the afternoon of June 5.

This footage, uploaded by the Rise Up 4 Abortion Rights group shows a large green banner with the words “Overturn Roe? Hell no!” written in white.

The protests follow the leak of a draft Supreme Court opinion obtained by Politico last month which indicated the court had voted to strike down the Roe v Wade decision, which has ensured federal abortion protections since 1973.

In a press release, the activist group said it was calling on people to “wear green and raise hell” to stop the Supreme Court from overturning Roe v Wade. Credit: RiseUp4AbortionRights.org via Storyful
