The Women’s March is planning a nationwide day of rallies in all 50 states in support of reproductive rights. Marches are scheduled for 2 October, two days before the Supreme Court reconvenes for its new term.

The activist group announced the rallies on 2 September, the day Texas’ controversial new abortion legislation went into effect, banning abortion after six weeks — before most women know they are pregnant — and giving anyone, anywhere, the ability to take legal action against anyone connected with an abortion in the state.
