Roe v. Wade ruling: Protests planned across Southern California

Several protests are planned across Southern California on Friday after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, which will give power to the states to ban abortions.

However, the decision is unlikely to have much of an impact on the Golden State. In May, California Gov. Gavin Newsom said he vows to protect abortion rights, saying "we are not going to be defeated."

On Friday, Newsom joined the governors of Washington and Oregon, as they promised to defend access to reproductive health care, including abortion and contraceptives. 

Below is a list of protests planned in the greater Los Angeles area on Friday:
