With the United State Supreme Court poised to overturn the landmark Roe v. Wade decision, which has protected abortion rights for nearly 50 years, hundreds of East Enders took to the streets of downtown Riverhead on Saturday to make their opinions heard.
The Bans Off Our Bodies rally, as it was called, was one of many similar events organized that day across the country.
Cries of "my body, my choice!" rang loud and clear. Signs, many homemade, spoke to the issue with messages including "No uterus, no opinion," "No wire hangers ever again," and "My body is none of your business."
