People took to the streets across the country and on the Central Coast Tuesday to protest recent laws restricting abortions.

Dozens of #StopTheBans rallies were held, including one outside the San Luis Obispo County Superior Court.

The rally was organized by Women’s March SLO.

The rallies came in response to a near-total ban on abortion recently signed into law in Alabama, as well as bills enacted or nearing passage in Mississippi, Kentucky, Ohio, Georgia, and Louisiana aimed at banning abortion once a fetal heartbeat is detected.

None of the laws has taken effect. All will likely be blocked while legal challenges play out.
