On May 2, 2022, a draft opinion regarding the reversal of Roe v. Wade was leaked from the Supreme Court. As a mark of disapproval, Planned Parenthood and a bunch of other abortion facilities, coordinated a nationwide event called “Bans Off Our Bodies” on May 14.
There were over 450 events across the nation as marchers aimed to “tell anti-abortion politicians:#BansOffOurBodies.”
We visited the National Mall in Washington, D.C. to hear what these protesters had to say and to put their vile displays and narratives on record.
One man was holding a sign that said “If abortion is murder then a blow job is cannibalism.” I don't think anyone in the pro-life movement believes that lone sperm is a fertilized egg but, to each their own I guess.
One woman, or rather, "person with a uterus,” gave a “visceral experience.” She came to the protest with blood dripping down her dress and legs and covering her hands. She also had a few hangers hung to her umbrella and droplets of blood made from red construction paper. On each droplet she had messages to “remind me why I’m here” … as if she would forget.
There was one man (I think) dressed in a black graduation robe with about ten plastic hangers fastened to the fabric. Not going to lie sir - but those won't work the way you seem to think they will.
One man sat crisscrossed and screamed "Pro-lifers are pro-Nazi's and the Nazi's will bring an actual genocide. Thank god for safe abortions." I put a lower case "g" on God because God doesn't support the death of an innocent baby and there's no such thing as a safe abortion.
The worst part was seeing children handed signs that said “F**K YOU” or “My Body, My Choice.” Most were in baby strollers but told to hold these vile displays.
The insanity of these people can’t get much worse. Check out the video above to see what we encountered.
