FRANKFORT, Ky. (LEX 18)– A reproductive rights rally was held in the Capitol Rotunda Thursday.

Pro-Choice advocates tell LEX 18 that they want lawmakers to stop telling them what to do with their bodies.

“I don’t need white men in suits that sit in rooms to create laws that dictate what I do with my womb. My body does not need your regulation,” said activist Hannah Drake.

Lawmakers have filed several bills proposing new abortion bans,  including the heartbeat bill, which would make abortion illegal when a heartbeat is detected.

The group hopes that they can stop the bills putting bans on abortions while they can.
