Ford, Melissa and Mandeville, Dan

Dan Mandeville holds a sign reading, "Women's Rights Human Rights," with Melissa Ford standing beside him.

"I just feel like we’re in scary times right now where a lot of white men are controlling the narrative and, um, I’m happy to be here today to kind of speak up" - Melissa Ford
"And a lot of people, even, even with current restrictions being passed people don’t even know that they’ve happened in their state and they’re not finding out until they go to go for treatment and find out “Oh, you’re not eligible because of this law that’s been passed.” And people just, people just don’t know what’s been going on and I don’t know, I think the more – we just need to speak up and make sure that people know what’s happening." - Dan Mandeville

Howerton, Kels

Kels Howerton holds a sign reading, "Safe, accessible abortions for all genders."

"I think it’s also important to remember that all genders can have abortions and while it does primarily affect women, um, to include trans people and non-binary people in that. I personally use they/them pronouns and I think it’s really important to remember how many people are affected. I love so many people who have gotten abortions, and it would have drastically changed their life if they were forced into pregnancy. So I think I’m here just because I want us to be a community that takes care of one another and um, fights for one another, so that we can all be freed."

Hennigh, Melody

Melody Hennigh holds a sign reading "Protect safe, legal abortions."

"As I explained to my five-year-old, we are sticking up to bullies."

Wood, Kat

Kat Wood holding a sign reading, "Fundamental human rights should NOT depend on your zip code!" with an LGBTQ pride flag sticker and a map of the United States with x-marks over states that restrict or outlaw abortion access.

Interviewer: What brings you here today?
"Oh, so much anger and so much sadness. Um, Roe has been around my entire life and I can’t believe we’re fighting the fights of our grandmothers again and again and again… and trans people and non-binary people are especially gonna be hurt by these laws. I mean, really, all people who need abortion care and need health care deserve to be able to have that equitably and safely and with dignity and I can’t believe we’re having to fight this again."

Jouers, Serena

Serena Jouers holds her small dog and a sign reading, "If I wanted the government in my uterus I'd fuck a politician."

"I feel like I need to do what I can to help spread the message and to help show that we will stand up for our rights and not let this get overturned and that there’s people out here, everywhere, that want – that feel passionately about it."

Fiore, Autumn

Autumn Fiore holds a sign reading, "If your activism isn't intersectional, then who is it for?"

"Overturning Roe v. Wade is much more than just taking away a person’s bodily autonomy, it could be a slippery slope into other landmark Supreme Court decisions that protect our rights to privacy, bodily autonomy, and just, our choices to do what we would like. Uh, and so I wanna take a stand and make sure that doesn’t happen. Um, the government doesn’t have a right to dictate who we choose to marry, whether we choose to keep a pregnancy, none of it. Um, and I know that there worst fear is us standing up for our rights, but, that doesn’t mean that we just let them do whatever they want."
