Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes will be in La Crosse on Thursday, taking part in a protest at the La Crosse County Courthouse (map), demanding abortion rights in the U.S.

The rally, hosted by the La Crosse County Democratic Party, goes from 4:30-5:30 p.m.

If Roe v. Wade is overturned, Wisconsin would revert back to a law from 1849 that bans abortion almost completely — except when the mother’s life is in danger.

Along with Barnes — who is also running for U.S. Senate in Wisconsin — many other community and political leaders will be in attendance and speaking, including all four 3rd Congressional District candidates — Rebecca Cooke, Deb McGrath, Dr. Mark Neumann and Sen. Brad Pfaff.

Tom Nelson, another U.S. Senate candidate, will also be in attendance .
