In cities across the country on Tuesday, thousands gathered to protest strict new state laws restricting women's rights to an abortion.
Philadelphia's "Stop the Bans Day of Action" rally was organized by Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania and attracted hundreds of pro-choice advocates to the South Broad Street median. Activists claimed that by making abortions illegal, women's lives will be put in danger should they choose to have abortions from unregulated facilities.
Below are some images from Tuesday's rally.
