DALLAS – Editor’s note: The Associated Press contributed to this report.

The Supreme Court, the conservative majority Roe v. Wade suspended constitutional protection for abortion, which lasted about 50 years, with the decision to dismiss the case. Friday’s results are expected to lead to abortion bans in about half of the states.

The decision came more than a month after a surprising leak of a draft opinion by Judge Samuel Alito showing that the court was ready to take this important step.

Following the SCOTUS decision, protests were already planned in North Texas.

The Dallas County Democratic Party is holding a rally in downtown on Saturday at 10 a.m. “Rise Rally Together for Our Rights” will be held in Main Street Garden Park at 1902 Main Street.

The Dallas Rally for Abortion Justice was scheduled to take place in downtown Dallas on Wednesday, June 29, from 2:00 p.m. Hosts include Afia Center, Jane’s Due Process, ACLU and Planned Parenthood. The rally will be held in downtown Dallas.

A “Decision Day Activity” rally was scheduled for Saturday afternoon in front of the Tarrant County Justice Center in downtown Fort Worth.

Beto O’Rourke, who challenged Texas Gov. Greg Abbott in this year’s election in Austin, will hold a “Rally for Reproductive Freedom” at the Pan American Neighborhood Park on Sunday at 5 p.m.

“The public event is a direct response to the Supreme Court’s dangerous decision to revoke women’s rights by repealing Roe vs. Wade,” O’Rourke’s campaign said in a press release.
