HANDS OFF OUR BODIES! ABORT the COURT!
Our Bodies, Our Choice! BAN GUNS Not ABORTIONS
It was a typical foggy day in July in San Francisco, and the fog never completely lifted, but that didn’t stop this energetic and passionate group, rising up together for reproductive rights. Huge thanks to RiseUp4AbortionRights.org who helped bring a lot of high spirited and energetic young people to the mix. Heartfelt and passionate speeches were shared at our short rally in the plaza, and terrific messaging/signage helped express our outrage about the recent Supreme Court assault on our reproductive rights, the overturning Roe v. Wade.
One shared rallying cry: “Abortion on demand and without apology!"
Media coverage included this great NBC report, featuring numerous interviews HERE.
Indybay Coverage HERE.
Dozens, many donning green, the international color for abortion rights, headed up to the bridge walkway after the rally, shouting "Rise Up 4 Abortion Rights, For Abortion Rights Rise Up, Rise Up!”
The entire rally & walk was documented by photographer Leon Kunstenaar. His amazing photos HERE.
Special thanks to Leon and ProBonoPhotos.org!
