A march for women’s reproductive rights is being planned for Oct. 2 in Topeka.

Haeli Maas, a Washburn University law student, is organizing the event to protest new legislation in Texas that bans abortion after six weeks of pregnancy and that allows Texans to sue anyone who aids, abets or performs such an abortion. The Texas law makes no exceptions for cases involving rape or incest.

Maas says Texas’ law has a “huge impact on all reproductive rights for women, not just Texans.”

The Topeka march will start at 10 a.m. Oct. 2 and will go from Evergy Plaza, 630 S. Kansas Ave., to the Kansas State Capitol.
