WILKES-BARRE, LUZERNE COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU)— An abortion-rights rally took place in Luzerne County on Friday.

Action Together NEPA organized a rally at the Luzerne County Courthouse. Among their messages today:

“We won’t go back!” protestors in Luzerne County yelled.

Alisha Hoffman-Mirilovich, the Executive Director of Action Together NEPA, joined Eyewitness News live to talk about their cause.

“Of course we’re disappointed but we knew this would be coming for a while. We are going to do everything we can to fight for safe legal abortions in Pennsylvania,” said Hoffman-Mirilovich.

“What’s your next step?” asked Andy Mehalshick.

“We have already endorsed Attorney General Josh Shapiro for governor. He has vowed to protect the right to safe abortions. We will get out in the doors, start knocking in the neighborhoods making phone calls,” Hoffman-Mirilovich answered.

No doubt we will hear much more in the days and weeks ahead. We will have more tonight on Eyewitness News at 11.
