Listen to this article

The square outside Seattle Central College was busy Tuesday afternoon with abortion-rights activists rallying in response to recent fears of the U.S. Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade and with it — the constitutional right to abortion.

The rally was hosted by the Seattle chapter of Refuse Fascism.
A person holds the sign that says “Catholic against abortion and capitalism.” The Roman Catholic Church has consistently condemned abortion.
Some protestors say that access to abortion is part of their rights to privacy and living free from discrimination.
Demonstrators hold a sign that says, “Grannies still here! fighting to protect reproductive rights our generation won.”
A Seattle Central College security officer oversees the rally.
Signs feature Savita Halappanavar and Pauline Roberson Shirley. Savita Halappanavar was 31 years old when she died in 2012, but her death led to reform of Irish abortion laws. Pauline Roberson died after an illegal abortion, leading to blood loss and ultimately death.
A person holds a sign from  RiseUp4AbortionRights that says, “Abortion on demand & without apology.”
