(Fargo, ND) -- Fargo's streets turned pink following hundreds of abortion activists voicing their opposition against signals from the U.S Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade.

"I think the turnout is absolutely amazing," said abortion activist Madison Ziegler, "It just proves that people want legal accessible abortion and that is why we are here tonight."

"Hands off - Our bodies" was chanted by hundreds of attendants, many holding signs sharing pro-abortion messaging. Other chants included "This is what democracy looks like"  and  "Abortion is healthcare - We want it now". Many attendees say their message is clear.

"I think they should mind their f*****g business, honestly," said one activist, speaking about pro-life legislators, "Get out of everyone else's business. It's tiring at this point "

The rally started outside Fargo City Hall, where protesters walked down 1st Ave N, looped onto Broadway N, then walked back to city hall on 4th Ave N.
