WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAW) - About 30 to 40 pro-choice advocates protested the Supreme Court’s ruling on abortion outside the Marathon County Courthouse Sunday afternoon. The pro-Roe activists met on Grand Avenue and Forest Streets to speak out against the anti-abortion ruling.

The protestors lined the street holding up signs and chanting “My body, my choice.” Many people at the rally expressed their disappointment with Friday’s ruling.

“All of us believe that the decision to have an abortion should be left between the pregnant person and their doctor. Legislators or judges should not interfere,” said Kristin Conway, a candidate for the 85th Assembly District.

The protest remained peaceful throughout the afternoon.
