Protests have erupted all over the country after Politico released a leaked initial draft majority opinion, indicating the U.S. Supreme Court would overturn two abortion-related cases, which would end federal protection of abortion rights.

The leaked draft opinion, written by Justice Samuel Alito, was confirmed by Chief Justice John Roberts.

Once the news broke Monday night, protesters (and anti-protesters) have taken to the streets.

Here are just a few photos from protests in Washington D.C., New York City, Boston and more.
