Abortion rights supporters will ‘wave signs and yell loud’ in Everett

EVERETT — A roadside “Bans Off Our Bodies” rally is planned for 5 p.m. Friday at 3900 Broadway in Everett.

A Facebook post by the organizing group, Snohomish County Indivisible, reads: “In light of the Roe decision today, we will be gathering to wave signs and yell loud how angry we are the Supreme Court ignored the ‘will of the people’ and overturned Roe v. Wade.”

Naomi Dietrich, group founder, said in an email to The Daily Herald: “Abortion has always existed and will continue to exist. … Snohomish County Indivisible will do all we can to keep Washington state a safe place for all those seeking access to abortion services.”

The group held two rallies in May at the Snohomish County Courthouse plaza, drawing hundreds of protesters against what was then a looming decision by the U.S. Supreme Court.
