(Fargo, ND) -- Abortion rights rallies are being planned across North Dakota.

A number of state and regional groups are joining together Saturday to participate in Bans Off Our Bodies rallies in support of access to safe and legal abortion care. Similar rallies are planned in all 50 states this weekend.

The rallies are a response to a draft decision leaked from the U.S. Supreme Court that appears to overturn the Roe v. Wade opinion.

North Dakota is one of 13 states to have a trigger law that would automatically enact an abortion ban if Roe v. Wade is overturned.

A rally will be held in Fargo at 6 p.m. at City Hall Saturday.
