Abortion advocates take to nation’s streets, vow to be ‘ungovernable’

Throngs of pro-choice activists staged rallies across the United States Saturday, vowing perdition if the Supreme Court, Congress, or both did not create nationwide access to abortions.

“Until our government starts working for us and codifies our right to an abortion, we will be UNGOVERNABLE,” Rachel O’Leary Carmona, executive director of the Women’s March on the National Mall in DC, tweeted. “This is a fight for abortion rights. And it’s a fight we’ll win.”

Marchers gathered in Washington, New York, Houston, Detroit, Boston, Pittsburg, Rochester, Cleveland, Asheville, North Carolina, and points beyond for what were deemed “Bans Off Our Bodies” events that were sponsored by a host of pro-abortion groups and businesses, among them the Women’s March, ACLU, and Planned Parenthood.

“Today we took to the streets,1 million strong, to proclaim #BansOffOurBodies,” a tweet from Planned Parenthood reads. “Thank you for bringing your loved ones, making signs, chanting, marching, and giving all you got to make this movement strong. We are so thankful to be in this fight with you.”

The demands from protesters were not universal, but tended toward complete and exceptionless access to abortion, even past the point at which a child would be viable outside the womb.

As first reported by Fox News, New York City Mayor Eric Adams endorsed no limits on abortion access up to the day of birth.

“I think women should have the right to choose their bodies,” Adams, who appeared at a rally in New York, said. “Men should not have that right to choose how a woman should treat their body.”

Also in New York, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer were on hand for an event at which protesters demanded the ouster of Senators Joe Manchin (D-W.V.) and Susan Collins of Maine.

But the true villains, at least in the eyes or pro-abortion throngs, were Conservative Supreme Court Justices who might make abortion a state issue.

“We should establish that this Supreme Court, particularly the five justices that support this decision, purposefully misled the Senate in their confirmation process, and I think that then establishes that the Supreme Court has become over-politicized and dysfunctional,” Gillibrand told Fox News.

Former First Lady Michelle Obama did not specify where her line was drawn on abortion limitations, but supported the general spirit of the protests on Twitter.

“I’m so inspired by everyone out marching today,” Obama tweeted in part. “And I know that we’re going to see so many folks carrying this energy forward to the elections in November and in every election after that.”

But not everyone in the nation was in a mood to celebrate the pro-abortion rallies.

“The 62 million lives lost to abortion can never be restored, but a scourge on America’s conscience will be no longer,” Conservative commentator Kayleigh McEnany said in remarks tweeted by the Media Research Center.

In a Saturday tweet, Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) said, “Democrats have utterly lost their minds,” while sharing a Daily Signal article from last week about the Democrats’ since defeated abortion bill.

Rep. Lauren Boebert (R – Col.) asked in a tweet, “Does the Left apply the same standards to fathers who abandon their children because it’s not a convenient time in their lives to have children as they do to mothers who end their babies’ lives in the womb for similar reasons?”

The Supreme Court has not yet issued a ruling that upholds or rejects Roe vs. Wade, but a recent and unprecedented leak of a draft opinion has sparked outrage in the pro-abortion ranks.
