Students at Carthage High School walk-out in support of Roe v. Wade

CARTHAGE, Mo. – Students at Carthage High School hosted a walk-out event to show their support for Roe V. Wade on May 18.

According to the event organizer Xzandria Avina, the purpose of the walk-out is to stand against the Supreme Court’s leaked decision to overturn Roe V. Wade.

“Here in Missouri, a woman’s right to bodily autonomy will be stripped from her, with an Anti-Abortion bill ready to be passed if the decision goes through.”

Students began their protest at the roundabout on Grand and Fairlawn and made their way to the city’s courthouse.

Students also started a petition to show their support.
