abortion protest 2.jpg (copy)

Citizens of St. Joseph take to the street for a previous protest regarding reproductive rights. The event “1 in 4: Our Bodies, Our Choices, Our Stories” will share anonymous stories from the area about abortion. It will be held at 6 p.m. on Saturday, July 23, at The Metropolitan, 107 S. Sixth St.

Even before the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade, local organizations were organizing an event for reproductive rights.

A collaboration of a number of local groups, businesses and causes, “1 in 4: Our Bodies, Our Choice, Our Stories” intends on putting a face and stories to those affected by the court’s decision and Missouri’s trigger law that makes abortion illegal in most cases.
