It's a message from Central New York to lawmakers nationwide.
"Keep your hands, hands, hands off my body," protestors at the “Stop the Ban” rally sang together.
They say the decision to get an abortion belongs to each woman, so they stood united, Tuesday evening.
"Too often when you have a marginalized group being attacked whether it's women, whether it's people of color, whether it's disabled people, you only see the people being attacked are the ones at the fight,” said Maurice brown, a Syracuse resident. “Even though I'm not under attack, I'm still under attack. None of us will be free until all of us are free."
In the last few weeks, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi and Ohio have passed laws that prohibit abortion when a fetal heartbeat is detected. Alabama's governor signed a measure making the procedure a felony in nearly all cases.
"It’s disgusting what’s happening,” said Brown. “We’re treating people who are seeking healthcare worse than people who are raping. You get less punishment for doing an actual rape than to abort the child that came from a rape."
Pro-choice advocates say the new laws take the country back 50 years.
"Even though we're relatively safe here in NYS that doesn’t mean the fight is over,” Gina Iliev, the health equity coordinator at Planned Parenthood. “That doesn't mean that everyone has equal access, even in this state, so we're going to fight until everyone has equal access."
Earlier this year, New York moved in the other direction. Lawmakers passed the Reproductive Health Act, which expanded abortion rights.
Supporters of the bills are looking to force a new abortion showdown in the Supreme Court. Some believe Roe vs. Wade could be overturned with the justices who now sit on the court.
