For a second time in a week, protesters appear at the Utah Capitol
SALT LAKE CITY — Police estimate that as many as 1,500 people appeared at the State Capitol in Salt Lake City on Thursday afternoon to protest Supreme Court opinion that was leaked to Politico earlier this week.
The opinion, if it does not change, means that the Roe v. Wade ruling citing a constitutional right to abortion in the United States would be overturned.
KSL NewsRadio’s Lindsay Aerts was live on the scene and filed the report below:
By the time this report was published, the protesters were said to be marching away from the Capitol building. An ambulance was on the scene and at least one person was seen being treated by emergency crews.
Aerts reported there was a small group of anti-abortion protestors who were also at the Capitol on Thursday.
