ELMIRA & CORNING, N.Y. (WENY) --  Two pro-choice rallies were held Monday night in Elmira and Corning after the Supreme Court handed down a decision on Friday that overturns Roe V. Wade -- which protects a woman's right to an abortion on a federal level.

The rally in Elmira was held in Wisner Park, and the rally in Corning was at Centerway Square.

At each rally, pro-choice supporters held signs protesting the Supreme Court's recent decision.

At the Corning Rally, Randi Hewit, owner of Card Carrying Gifts, said, "We don't want people to give up, we want them to see this as an opportunity to fight, to vote, to make plans to take care of each other, to take care of themselves, and to simply not give up. Don't get scared..."
