DAVENPORT, Iowa (KWQC) - Pro-choice abortion advocates gathered at Davenport’s Vander Veer Park on Sunday to protest the SCOTUS decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. The protest was organized by Scott County Democrats.

Protesters heard from speakers encouraging them to vote on Tuesday if they live in Illinois or to help register their friends to vote in November. Protestors marched around the outside the park holding signs and chanting.

“I myself am Christian, I always have been. And that doesn’t stop me from saying that there. It is still People’s Choice. It’s each woman’s choice to do what they want with their body,” Hannah Hoeppner said while protesting Sunday.

Reactions to the ruling Friday from the Quad Cities Community.
