SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KTXL) — Hundreds of abortion-rights supporters rallied in front of the Sacramento federal courthouse on Tuesday in response to the leaked Supreme Court draft opinion.

“This fight is about protecting and expanding abortion access for all for all Californians and for those who are forced to seek care from other states that are passing hostile bans,” said Jennifer Wonnacott, with Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California.

The protest started at the Robert T. Matsui Federal Courthouse just 24 hours after a leaked opinion draft suggested Roe v. Wade could be in jeopardy. It’s the first time a draft of this kind has ever slipped through the highest court’s security. 

“Last night with that leaked opinion by the Supreme Court, which we know is just a draft opinion, not actually final law, but if it were, would be devastating,” said Brandon Richards, with PPAC. “And so when we saw that, we knew that we really had to make sure our voices here in California were heard.”

Although the draft is not an official decision from the court, people all across the U.S. took to the streets and social media to voice their concerns. 

In Sacramento, the people came together with chants and signs and marched to the State Capitol.

“Every human being should be passionate about the rights over their bodies. And obviously, women have been fighting for this much longer than men,” Kimberly Spencer, an abortion-rights supporter. “And so that’s why it’s important for both men and women, people who do not declare a gender and everything in between to be included in today’s march and everybody should be concerned about this because it is not just a woman’s right. It’s a human right.” 

The leaked documents would attempt to enact a nationwide six-week ban on abortion. Under current federal law, states cannot deny abortions to women who are in their first trimester, but the states do have their own laws when the pregnancy gets into the second and third trimesters. 

While states cannot revoke these rights, many people said they already can and have created barriers to access. 

Officials with Planned Parenthood told FOX40 that with a majority conservative Supreme Court and those leaked documents coming out, this is the time for people to stand up and fight for abortion rights.

Under a Supreme Court ruling – expected to come this summer – women may lose that federal protection for first-trimester abortions, leaving them to have to go to a state that allows the procedure. But those without access to out-of-state travel will have to find another option.  

“We hope that California can continue to be a leader on really showing what it means to be a reproductive freedom state and protect abortion for all,” Wonnacott said.

Nearly half of the states across the U.S. would make it more difficult to have the procedure done if passed. However, California and Gov. Gavin Newsom made it known the Golden State is a safe place for those seeking reproductive care.
