Rally to protest 'ultrasound bill'

The Women’s Rights Coalition of Southern Chester County announced today that it is organizing a protest next Thursday against House Bill 1077, a controversial proposal that would require a woman seeking an abortion to have a vaginal ultrasound.

A March for the Protection of Women’s Rights will begin at 9 a.m. at the Penn Township Building, 260 Lewis Rd., in West Grove, and will proceed along Baltimore Pike to the office of State Rep. John Lawrence, a co-sponsor of the bill. Organizers said a rally will take place in the parking lot of Lawrence's office with various speakers presenting information about women’s rights and H.B. 1077.
