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 to see what we encountered.
