Several hundred people held a rally on the sidewalk outside the Hancock Whitney Center May 22, protesting state legislation that would curb a woman’s right to abortion.

Amy Irvin, director of the New Orleans Abortion Fund (NOAF), told Gambit the event is “part two” of the demonstration that took place at the state Capitol on last week, where 10 activists held a “die-in” — complete with fake blood — to protest the restrictions. The rally was organized by NOAF, Women With a Vision and the New Orleans People’s Assembly.
