The United States has been filled with protests since June 24 when the Supreme Court of the United States overturned Roe Vs. Wade.

Young and old take to the streets

From New York to Los Angeles, Americans of all walks of life have taken to the streets to make their voices heard.

"Women have heartbeats too"

Everyone seems to have something to say and most have VERY valid points.

A step backwards

This women's sign is 100% on point. Demonstrators gather outside of City Hall to protest the Supreme Court's verdict to overturn Roe vs Wade in Philadelphia, PA on June 24, 2022.

Back to the 70s...

Abortion rights activists protest the decision overturning Roe v. Wade outside the U.S. Supreme Court on June 25, 2022 in Washington, DC.

Other nations are moving forward while the US goes backwards

A common theme among protestors has been how the United States is going backwards compared to other countries around the world when it comes to women's rights.

The Prolife country that loves guns

Another common theme seen at protests is gun control.

More regulated than guns

It is a hard pill to swallow to know you live in a country where your body is more regulated than the use of firearms.

Ignore abortions, like you ignore mass shootings

This placard also hits home, particularly after the recent school shooting in Uvalde, Texas.

 

Keep church and state separate

Thousands gathered at Washington Square Park to protest against the Supreme Court's decision in Manhattan.

Pro-life and pro-abortion confrontations

An abortion-rights activist (left) and an anti-abortion activist argue in front of the Supreme Court following the 6-3 ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson Womens Health Organization on June 26 in Washington, DC.

A time to celebrate for pro-lifers

While thousands of Americans protested the Supreme Court's decision on abortion, many others celebrated and held pro-life rallies such as this woman in Milford, Pennsylvania.

 

Joy over the decision at the Save America Rally

Many at the Save America Rally with former US President Donald Trump at the Adams County Fairgrounds on June 25 in Mendon, Illinois held up signs of victory.

Trump loves unborn babies

Trump's rally on June 25 was filled with pleased MAGA supporters.

 

Supporters say "Pro-women = pro-life"

And while supporters of the Supreme Court's decision to practically abolish abortion in the United States claim that this decision will benefit women, most women in America do not seem to agree.

This is about power and control

Activists march through downtown to protest the overturning of Roe v. Wade in Los Angeles on Saturday, June 25.

Bodily autonomy = a human right

Activists insist that women should have the right to decide for themselves what happens with their bodies. Something the far right, doesn't seem too concerned about.

Abortions won't just go away

One thing certainly is true, that while the far-right may see the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe Vs. Wade as a victory, it doesn't mean abortions will stop. However, now women will have to go to dangerous measures to obtain one.

Women's lives will be at risk

Abortions are often a necessary part of female healthcare, and there are multiple situations in which they are necessary to save the life of a woman.

The fight goes on

This young protestor in LA, 7 year-old Mila Reveles, may have a long fight ahead of her to recover the  years of progress that were undone on June 24.
