A rally is planned in downtown Duluth on Saturday to protest several recent state laws enacted to ban or severely restrict access to abortions.

The "Show the Roe" rally is scheduled for noon Saturday at Lake Superior Plaza, at the corner of Superior Street and Lake Avenue.

The event is being organized by the Feminist Justice League, H.O.T.D.I.S.H. Militia and other partners.

"We must unite against all attempts to overturn Roe v. Wade and boldly stand up for abortion rights!" reads a description on the rally's Facebook event page. "Abortion is health care and should be available on demand without apology."

The event is planned in solidarity with several hundred "Stop the Bans" events across the country, many of which took place on Tuesday, according to stopabortionbans.org.
