Protesters Rally At Rep. Lipinski’s Office Over His Abortion Stance
January 7, 2020 1:05PM CST
Congressman Dan Lipinski is facing backlash over his stance on abortion. The Western Springs Democrat was among more than two-hundred members of Congress who recently signed onto a Friend of the Court brief filed in a Louisiana case seeking to overturn Roe. V. Wade, the 1973 ruling legalizing abortion nationwide. In response, pro-abortion rights supporters rallied yesterday morning outside Lipinski’s office in Lockport. Several protesters said they believe Lipinski is waging a war against women and their reproductive rights. Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot blasted Lipinski over the weekend, tweeting that it is time for him to leave office.
