The first Women in March of Biden’s leadership was aimed at high court action on Saturday, part of a nationwide protest that drew thousands to Washington DC and other cities to demand continued abortions in the year when lawmakers and judges appointed. it is in danger.
Thousands of women filled the square near the White House for a rally before the march. They put up posters saying “Beware of your womb,” “I want an abortion” and “Abortion is a personal decision, not a legal argument,” among other messages. Some wore T-shirts that read “1973”, a reference to the key Roe v. Wade elections, which made abortion legal for generations of American women.
Elaine Baijal, a 19-year-old student at American University, took photos of her friends and friends during the event. She said her mother told her about coming to a legal abortion abortion with her mother in the 1970s.
“It is unfortunate that we still have to fight for our rights 40 years later. But it is a tradition I want to continue, ”Baijal said of the move.
Proponents of her case have been working to make the actual transcript of this statement available online. The protest comes days before the start of a new high court ruling on the future of abortion rights in the United States, after the appointment of judges by Donald Trump strengthened the court’s security control.
The march is part of a “struggle to protect, protect, and strengthen our constitutional right to abortion”, Rachel O’Leary Carmona, director of Women’s March, said in a statement. “And to fight the supreme court, the governors and the senators who are not on our side – if they are not acting urgently at this time.”
The march comes a day after Biden’s administration urged a federal judge to block a national abortion law, which has banned multiple abortions in Texas since early September. It is one of a series of cases that will give the country a separate high court event to promote or defeat Roe v Wade.
Texas law was for the attention of the speakers.
“We will continue to give to Texas,” Marsha Jones of the Afiya Center for Black Women’s Health in Dallas, promised the people of Washington. “You can no longer tell us what to do with our bodies!”
Alexis McGill Johnson, president of Planned Parenthood around the world, spoke of women who are forced to drive long hours on national lines – sometimes mostly national ones – to have abortions in weeks since Texas law came into force.
“It’s dark time… but that’s why we’re here,” Johnson told the crowd as they marched through Freedom Square and the surrounding streets. With the coming name of the Supreme Court, “No matter where you are, this fight is at your door right now.”
Speaking at a separate event in Maine, Republican senator Susan Collins called Texas law “extremist, immoral and unconstitutional” and said she was working to make Roe v Wade a “state law”.
They said they are working with two Democrats and one Republican, and they are “examining” the language of their bill. Collins declined to name his colleagues, but said the law would be introduced soon.
One woman who opposes women’s abortion is called this year’s martial arts theme “macabre”.
“What about the equal rights of unborn women?” She sent Jeanne Mancini, president of an abortion prevention group called Men of Life.
The Women’s March has been a regular event – albeit under the influence of theonavirus – since millions of women left the United States and traveled around the world the day after Trump’s inauguration.
Without Trump as a person among women of different faiths to meet, and with the epidemic still raging, organizers will address hundreds of thousands of participants in the country on Saturday, not millions of 2017.
