"Women are going to be dying."

Abortion-rights supporters marched through downtown Atlanta over the weekend, with some saying fatalities could ensue from the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Georgia already has a high maternal mortality rate, according to OB-GYN Dr. Nadine Becker. “We fear that without action to expand abortion access from our state leaders, many Georgians will die unnecessarily,” she said. Activist Kaelan McIntosh said on Saturday she sees more protests in the future if abortion rights are not restored. “If things don’t change, we need to do something about it because women are going to be dying.” Details: wabe.org
