Thousands of people descend on Sydney, Melbourne to protest US abortion ruling

Tens of thousands of people have descended on major cities across Australia to demand access to safe abortions for millions of people in the US.

The ruling ended the constitutional protections for safe and legal abortion that had existed for nearly 50 years.

Abortion is decriminalized in every state except Western Australia, while geography plays an important role in its accessibility for people in other parts of the country.

However, the procedures can cost thousands of dollars and are not available to everyone.
