Pro Choice marchers take to the streets in DC and nationwide

On the 14th of May, furious pro-choice protesters marched on the Supreme Court-and on Federal courthouses all over the so-called "United States" in the "Bans off our bodies" marches. In DC, the marches were followed by protests at the homes of multiple anti-choice Supreme Court "Justices."

Neither rain nor cold nor cops yakking about residential protest laws could deter them. Statements afterwards warned that if women don't get privacy in their bodies, SCOTUS judges don't get privacy in their homes.
