BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — On Saturday, abortion rights activists gathered outside the Louisiana Capitol Building to spread awareness of women’s rights and voting.

The nation is currently divided over the Supreme decision on the overturning of Roe v. Wade.

“We deserve Bodily autonomy. We deserve to make our own choices,” they said.

The coordinator for 10,000 women in Louisiana, Angela Adkins is known for being a huge advocate for women’s rights in Baton Rouge.

“People are angry, and they are angry at the people who are elected to stay in buildings like this,” Adkins said pointing to the Louisiana State Capitol building.

Dozens of activists attended Saturday’s march, marching from the state capitol building to the governor’s mansion.

A slogan called Roe Roe Roe-Vember is being used this voting season to stand out for abortion rights activists.

“The elections matter and Roe is going to be on a lot of people’s minds when they go into the voting booth in November on November 8th,” Adkins said.

If you’re registered to vote in Louisiana, in-person voting at your local election office starts Oct. 11, while online voting starts Oct. 18. The deadline to vote is Nov. 8.

While on the other side, the state director for Louisiana Black Advocates for Life Tara Wicker says every human being should have the right to live.

“Having it illegal in Louisiana was a huge win,” says Tara Wicker, the state director of Lousiana Black Advocates for Life.

Wicker wants to bring awareness to how abortions affect the black community.

“So many people are just unaware that African Americans are leading the nation as it relates to abortion,” Wicker said.

Lousiana pro-Life organizations, like Wicker’s, have the mission of helping mothers going through their pregnancies.

“We know what you’re going through, and we want to make sure they feel like they have a family and a support group,” said Wicker.

The Lousiana Right to Life offers outreach programs for mothers in need of assistance.

A donation drive hosted by the Louisiana Black Advocates Life will be held on Oct. 23.
