HOLLIDAYSBURG, Pa. (WTAJ) — A group of Blair County residents have organized a rally for Sunday, July 31 at 5 p.m. outside the Blair County Courthouse to protest current Pennsylvania abortion laws.

The event comes just over a month after the Supreme Court’s ruling to overturn Roe V. Wade. A reproductive rights protest was held at the same location last month.

“This is a very pertinent topic that locals are engaged in,” event organizer Ethan Potter said. “Hundreds of people are expected to descend on the sidewalk outside Blair County Courthouse.”

Potter said the event has been given support by Citizens Concerned for Human Life, local churches, political organizations and religious organizations.

Keynote speakers include local members of Congress Sen. Judy Ward (R-30), Rep. Jim Gregory (R-80) and Rep. Lou Schmitt (R-79).
