Pro-Choice supporters flood Union Square Park for the second time

More than 300 people gathered in Union Square Park on Saturday to protest the US Supreme Court’s decision to overturn the landmark Roe v. pick up calf.

A day after the Supreme Court sparked nationwide protests by overturning a ruling that had protected women’s abortion rights for nearly 50 years, protesters gathered near the farmers’ market to denounce the decision. Many wore green bandanas, a symbol of Latin America’s pro-choice movement, while some had signs reading “Overthrow Roe? NO WAY!”

“I am terribly upset about what is happening in our country. I’ve always been an activist and I feel like it’s not my country anymore,” said protester Carol Silverman, a 79-year-old retired psychotherapist. “I’m upset. I’m frustrated. I’m not very optimistic.”

Gwen Lohse, a 17-year-old high school graduate, said the fight for abortion rights has no age limit.

“I volunteer with women who are three, four times my age and it’s so upsetting to see them who have already fought for it working for it again,” the teenager said.
