Hundreds of people marched through downtown Los Angeles to protest in support of abortion rights, DPA reported.

The action was part of the second consecutive weekend of demonstrations in California since the US Supreme Court overturned a 1973 decision that legalized abortion in the country.

Outside the Federal Court, speakers urged the crowd to march peacefully to express their displeasure at the repeal of a 49-year-old federal abortion right.

The protest was organized by the Southern California branch of Rise Up 4 Abortion Rights, which has organized other similar events. She called for demonstrations on the US national holiday – Independence Day, July 4.
