Late on Monday night an extensive U.S. Supreme Court draft majority opinion by Samuel Alito was leaked indicating the court will reverse Roe v Wade (1973). On Tuesday the Supreme Court confirmed that the document was authentic.
Today in Kansas City several hundred pro-choice demonstrators gathered at Mill Creek Park for a rally and picketing.
Support for the demonstrators from passing traffic came in the form of honking horns, raised arms and fists, and shouts of encouragement.
A very small anti-choice contingent (men, of course) showed up at various times during the demonstration.
The pro-choice demonstrators were diverse and came from many generations. They’re pissed off and activated. This is not going away.
Someone never fails to make that mistake – berating a large gathering of pissed off women. They didn’t back down. Which seemed to upset him even more.
There were speakers.
