Humboldt County Residents Show Up for Reproductive Rights

In the wake of Texas passing the Heartbeat Act, effectively outlawing all abortions in the state, women across the country have rallied together in protest of the new law. The law, which bans all abortions after a fetal heartbeat can be detected – as early as six weeks – flies in the face of the Roe v. Wade decision.

On Oct. 2, the organization Women’s March coordinated marches across the country to call for the repeal of the Texas law.

In Eureka, Humboldt county residents gathered in front of the Eureka Courthouse with signs and guest speakers in a show of solidarity for women in Texas, calling for action by lawmakers to repeal the new law.
