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."

Howell, Kip

Kip Howell holds a sign reading, "Forced birth in a country with the highest [maternal] mortality rate, no paid maternity, no universal subsidized childcare, no continued birth parent care, and frequently inaccessible mental health care. - Tocarra Mallard."

"I feel that because they have decided this is not, like, a right under the constitution, this gives way for a lot of other issues. Especially, since they say, like, this is not, like constitutionally worth it for privacy specifically. Um, it gives way for them to attack things like gay marriage rights and many other things. So, I feel that it’s my civic duty to come here and protest."

Treleven, Carolyn

Carolyn Treleven holds a sign reading, "This doesn't stop abortions... it stops SAFE abortions."

Interviewer: What brings you here today?
"Outrage. Frustration. Exhaustion... this is for everybody that has a fundamental right to make decisions about their own medical care."

Runbeck, Jan RN and Mowat, Mike

Jan Runbeck, RN and Mike Mowat hold sign, made by Planned Parenthood, together reading "Protect safe, legal abortion."

"My aunt was orphaned uh, at about six months of age when her mother, uh, had, and we don’t know if it was self-induced abortion or if she went to a, uh, alley abortionist, was found dead on the kitchen floor in a puddle of blood from the fact that she knew she had more children than the family could support. So, uh, that’s the personal story, but I’m also a public health nurse and demographically, when women have access to abortion, they have better long-term outcomes, society has better outcomes as far as literacy rate, poverty rates, health rates, and all that. So, from a public health long-term perspective, it’s better for society, and individually, um, my aunt would have had a much better life, had she had a mother." - Jan Runbeck, RN
"I’m just generally opposed to taking advantage of people or keeping people down, I mean there’s a huge movement all over the world and all through history of keeping uh people down, so we have low wages, people without rights, so even in our own constitution, which they use as a preface for-for overturning Roe vs. Wade, women had no rights at that time. So if they can take away those particular rights, they can take away all the rest of them." - Mike Mowat

Merilo, Katt

Katt Merilo hold a sign reading "Pregnant, pro-choice, + pissed off." The back of her sign, unpictured, reads, "Here for my unborn's rights - to protect her body + plan her own future."

"I am here because of abortion rights affects all people, not just women, not just cis women, but women of color, trans women. And, abortion rights are very important for all of us to be able to plan our futures, and our families, and keep ourselves safe. I’m also nine months pregnant, I’m due on Monday... It's a girl."

Schmidt, Brian

Brian Schmidt, carrying a child on his back, holds a sign reading, "The majority draft opinion does not represent the majority of Americans!"

"It’s [laughs] it’s uh not fair that a small percentage of people can dictate the rights of a large, I mean, millions of people."

Fulani, Aja

Aja Fulani pictured in black tactical gear.

"We’ve seen the reality of what happens to people who want to make their voices heard, call for justice whether it be peacefully or otherwise, we have seen that when that runs counter to what the state’s interests are, they are silenced one way or another. And our presence is hopefully at least a small deterrent if nothing else. We’re a symbol of security to the people that are here to make them feel like they can engage with their community and be heard without fear of retribution."

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."
