‘Choking on my rage’: Lancaster abortion-rights protesters rally at courthouse

Several hundred people packed Lancaster’s old courthouse steps and spilled onto and across East King Street to demand President Joe Biden and Democrats in Congress protect a woman’s right to abortion.

“We will settle for nothing less than abortion on demand without apology,” event host Savannah Thorpe said Wednesday evening.

Thorpe kicked off the half-hour rally by leading the crowd in a cathartic yell intended to alleviate anger and frustration since Monday’s leak of a draft U.S. Supreme Court opinion suggesting the court could soon overturn Roe v. Wade.
