Abortion-rights advocates gathered in the nation’s capital and by state capitol buildings across the country Saturday for a challenging task: persuading the Supreme Court not to reverse the 50-year precedent set by Roe v. Wade.

After listening to speeches from abortion-rights activists, elected officials and faith leaders in the nation’s capital, thousands of demonstrators embarked on an hourlong march to the Supreme Court under cloudy skies and occasional drizzle, joining several hundred other demonstrators who were already there.

Many attendees wore ponchos and carried umbrellas and shouted chants like “hands off our bodies” and “we will fight back” to the beat of bucket drums. Some said they doubted the conservative Supreme Court would change course and vote to uphold Roe v. Wade. But they said they wanted their voices heard.
