Reaction Emotional in Arkansas to SCOTUS Decision Reversing Constitutional Right to Abortion

A protestor holds up a coat hanger at a pro-choice rally on the Fayetteville town square Friday, hours after the U.S. Supreme Court reversed a 50-year old constitutional right to abortion.

On Friday, the U.S. Supreme Court issued a decision to reverse a 50 year-old federal constitutional right to abortion. The ruling makes way for states, like Arkansas, to ban or drastically limit access to abortion. Reaction from Arkansas state officials, abortion providers, pro-life and pro-choice advocates was swift.
