BOSTON (WHDH) - Many gathered in Copley Square Friday evening to protest a potential Supreme Court ruling that would revoke national access to abortion.

A draft report leaked Monday indicated the Supreme Court is planning to overturn Roe v. Wade, which marchers said would go against what U.S. citizens want.

The crowd only grew in size after the group left the steps of the Boston Public Library.

“It feels like this country has not really progressed in the direction that I thought it would,” one person said. “This shouldn’t be something that is constantly debated or questioned.”

Hundreds of men women and children then marched through the Back Bay demanding action from politicians and asking people in other cities to get out and join them.

“We need more people fighting. We need more people advocating. This is an issue that is critical to every human being,” said another attendee.

The organizers say this rally will not be their last.
