COLUMBUS (WCMH) – Organizers say over a 1,000 people marched Saturday at the Ohio Statehouse in support of abortion rights.

The Columbus rally was one of many across the country in response to a Texas law that bans nearly all abortions in that state.

Columbus resident Tenah McMahan was one of those who attended the march.

“I think our knowledge of understanding our bodies and what women are about is a big issue,” she said.
