'Hands off my body': Thousands protests against anti-abortion laws in US

Tens of thousands of people came out to protest against the anti-abortion laws, especially since Texas law went into effect that bans almost all abortions. On Saturday, the locals of the United States took to streets to raise their voices and slogans against these discriminatory and inhumane laws

For RBG!

The protesters held signs that read "Mind your uterus" and "Make abortion legal," with several women -- and men -- dressed like late Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, America's iconic women's rights crusader, who died last year.

In large numbers

Two days before the Supreme Court is due to reconvene, the rallies took place in more than 600 cities, according to organisers, who said that hundreds of thousands of people gathered across all 50 states.

Counterprotests

At the Supreme Court, the marchers were met by counterprotests. A chain of riot police kept the two groups apart.
