Around 200 abortion rights campaigners marched through Dublin city this afternoon.

The rally follows the US Supreme Court decision on Friday overturning the Roe vs Wade ruling.

The protesters marched to the US Embassy in Ballsbridge where speeches took place.

Activist Ailbhe Smyth said the ruling is a "mockery of freedom, a mockery of justice and a mockery of equality for women".

Speaking outside the US Embassy, she said the ruling is a declaration of war on women and "the burden will fall on the most vulnerable, and that is a disgrace".

"We don't want our bodies in the hands of legislators," she added.

Ruth Coppinger of ROSA, which organised the demonstration, said the aim was to show "solidarity with our siblings in the US".

Ms Coppinger said there should be protests outside every US embassy around the world saying "this has to be the signal for a mass movement throughout the US".
