CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG) - Protesters marched in Cedar Rapids and other cities in support of a women’s ability to choose an abortion and against the possible overturning of Roe vs. Wade listened to various speakers on Saturday.

The rallies, organized by Planned Parenthood, were also greeted by some counter-protests by pro-life advocates. Around 70 people gathered outside of the Dubuque County Courthouse for a march to the tower clock plaza.

Attendees in Cedar Rapids marched from Greene Square in downtown, across the river on the Third Avenue bridge before taking First Street to Second Avenue and back across the river, completing the loop back to Greene Square Park.
