LEXINGTON Ky. (FOX 56) – Protests continue across the country after a supreme court document concerning Roe V. Wade was released. Kentucky is no exception.

Downtown Lexington became grounds for a protest in response to the draft ruling showing the supreme court overturning Roe v. Wade. The protest led by organizer Julia Blake brought in a lot of attention as others joined in.

“I woke up at 4 a.m. about a week ago and was like, let’s organize a protest. I’m really excited about the turnout,” Blake said.

The protesters held signs reading ‘keep abortion legal’ and protect Roe v. Wade. Passing drivers honked to show support. Those who attended call it a safe space, saying movements like this give them a glimmer of hope.

“It’s real emotional, especially being a woman and a young woman, knowing that this is something that my children might have to deal with too, it’s uncalled for, and it shouldn’t be happening. It’s 2022,” said attendee Lindsey Puryear.

The crowd hoped to send a message of solidarity.

“Knowing that I have a bunch of supportive women with me who are ready to rally at the same time that I am, it’s great,” Puryear said.

“For those at the opposition, putting a human face behind a reproductive right is going to be really important. We’re letting people know that we’re human, and that this is a real issue,” Blake added.
