Abortion advocacy groups said they saw their donations grow exponentially after a draft opinion leaked revealing that the U.S. Supreme Court soon intended to reverse its landmark Roe v. Wade decision.

The reproductive-rights group NARAL Pro Choice America on Tuesday said it received a 1,403% spike in donations in the hours following the Monday evening publication of the draft opinion dismantling the 1973 ruling that legalized abortion. More than half of that came from first-time donors.
