Pro-abortion protesters in Los Angeles called for the abolition of the Supreme Court in videos shared by Townhall on Monday.
A crowd of men and women guided by a woman with a microphone repeatedly chanted “abolish the Supreme Court” in front of a Los Angeles transit station, according to footage shared by Townhall. The protest came a week after a leaked draft opinion revealed the Supreme Court would likely overturn Roe v. Wade and return the power to restrict and regulate abortions to state governments.
There appeared to be about thirty people at the pro-abortion protest, many of whom were holding “Party for Socialism and Liberation” signs.
The signs held by crowd members said, “Legalize abortion once and for all,” “We won’t go back we will fight back,” “The system is sexist,” and “Only the struggle has won women’s rights.”
“When they try to take away our right to control our bodies, it is not only an assault on women, it is an assault on each and every one of us,” a protest leader said.
According to the footage, protest leaders also discussed housing issues, transgenderism, pandemic job loss, and childcare.
“There is a war being waged on women, women who have suffered the brunt of the pandemic. In 2020, 140,000 jobs lost, all for women,” the protest leader said. “It is women workers who are leading the fight for dignity in out hospitals, in our classrooms, in our grocery stores, childcare, the right to housing.”
