BOSTON (CBS) — A rally is planned Saturday on the Boston Common in support of abortion rights, after a leaked Supreme Court draft opinion suggested that the landmark Roe v. Wade case is set to be overturned.
Attorney General Maura Healey is among those planning to attend the protest from noon to 2 p.m. at the Parkman Bandstand. The Planned Parenthood Advocacy Fund of Massachusetts, ACLU of Massachusetts and Reproductive Equity Now are organizing the rally.
Overturning Roe would pave the way for states to make their own decisions on abortion. Massachusetts lawmakers took action in 2020 to codify abortion rights into state law.

Buffalo Commissioner Joseph Gramaglia told ABC News: “We have uncovered information that if he escaped the [Tops] supermarket, he had plans to continue his attack.
"He had plans to continue driving down Jefferson Ave to shoot more black people ... possibly go to another store [or] location."
US Attorney Merrick Garland revealed that the Department of Justice is investigating the shooting as a "hate crime" and "an act of racially-motivated violent extremism".

Celestine Chaney, 65, Heyward Patterson, 67; Katherine Massey, 72; Pearl Young 77; Ruth Whitfield, 86, and Andre Mackneil, 53 also died.
Retired Buffalo Fire Commissioner Garnell W. Whitfield, paid tribute to the 86-year-old as he told The Buffalo News: “My mom was the consummate mom. My mother was a mother to the motherless.
“She was a blessing to all of us. She loved God and taught us to do the same thing."
Meanwhile, Pearl asked to be dropped off at the store on the day of the shooting.
Her son Damon was supposed to pick her up, according to the Washington Post.
The pair had been speaking throughout but lost contact when the chaos unfolded.
Damon said: "She wasn't answering, wasn't calling back", before learning that his mom had been killed.
Zaire Goodman, 20, Jennifer Warrington, 50, and Christopher Braden, 55, were treated in a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries and have since been released.
Of the 13 victims, 11 were black, according to law enforcement.
Customers hid in freezers to escape the bloody rampage at the store.
Lamont Thomas and his daughter Londin, eight, crammed behind a set of milk coolers.
Lamont described the shots as “never-ending”.'NEVER ENDING' SHOTS
He told News 10 ABC: “He actually shot through the milk carton, but no bullets went through. We were protected by the storage room back there.
“From there we waited until the shots stopped and the police came.”
Tops Market operations manager Shonnell Harris said: “I ran around the front of the building, experienced someone get shot, and ran around the back to get my daughter.”
New York State Attorney General Letitia James branded the massacre an act of "domestic terrorism" during a press conference on Sunday.
Gendron was seen in photos during his arrest wearing military fatigues.
Police said he was wearing body armor and a helmet fitted with a camera to live-stream the shooting and upload it directly to Twitch.
The teenager pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder, and his lawyer requested a forensics exam.
Gendron reportedly made violent threats toward other students at his high school, which prompted a police investigation in June 2021.
He had reportedly spoken about carrying out a shooting at a graduation ceremony or at a similar event, according to The Buffalo News.
The school officials described him as a "very troubled young man," leading state police to investigate him under a section of mental health laws.
He was then referred for a mental health evaluation and counseling.Read More On The SunSKINNY KIM Kim Kardashian flaunts her tiny waist in a skintight outfit in new photosFINAL SACRIFICE Guard's heroic last act praised as first Buffalo shooting victims named
