Mass protests in the United States in defense of the right to abortion

In the middle of a sea of ​​banners – “my body, my decision”; “preserve reproductive freedom”, “prohibitions outside of our bodies”, or “abortion in all 50 states is a human right” – the sign that Heather wears requires explanation: “I’m here for her.”

She is his grandmother. “She had an illegal abortion, her life was in danger, in a warehouse on the Upper West Side in the 1930s. She nearly died, and as a result, she was unable to conceive again. That’s why my mother was adopted,” she explains.

Not only was this right established 50 years ago, but they also fear the country’s course “towards fascism”

Heather, who fears returning to the medieval caves that Belle, her grandmother, has encountered, is one of tens of thousands of people who have demonstrated in New York this Saturday, as well as participating in 400 other marches across the country against that change. the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Roe v. Wade, which legalized abortion nationally in 1973, seems inevitable.

The main protest in New York began in Brooklyn, and after crossing the famous bridge, the crowd reached lower Manhattan. “My body, my decision,” they sang. The atmosphere was enthusiastic due to the mass response, but emphatically solemn.

“It is very important to demonstrate, because for the first time in half a century, we may lose the right to choose. I can not sit still, I am silent. That would be submission,” says Joy Cusick, a real estate agent.

Be silent for a few seconds before answering the next question. “I would tell Judge Alito that I am doing this for my daughter. I would tell them that the legal right of women to choose remains in force even after 50 years,” she emphasizes.

Samuel A. Alito Jr. is an ultra-conservative Supreme Court justice who wrote a bill that would abolish abortion in the country and remain in the hands of every state, of which 23 have all but announced they will ban it in practice. . Four other conservative judges supported this project, so they have a majority.

This text was leaked on May 2, causing an unprecedented crisis in the judicial establishment. The case should be formalized in June of this year.

Clarence Thomas, another ultra-conservative judge, criticized the leak this Friday. He claimed that this undermined his authority. However, in this act, he was not asked any questions about his wife Jeannie Thomas’ attempts to immortalize Donald Trump in the White House.

Washington, Chicago, Boston, Los Angeles, Austin or New York, to name a few cities, poured into the streets. “My womb has more rules than your weapon,” emphasizes the sign Melissa Cohen wears in The Big Apple.

“The Almighty has gone beyond his limits. I am a lawyer, and what Alito is trying to do is unprecedented, never in the history of this country has the law been delayed, they have always expanded,” she notes.

Bad for Cohen is no longer just abortion, but the direction of the United States. “We are moving towards fascism,” he laments.
