Sat, the 7th of May was the first weekend day after the Supreme Court's Monday leak of a draft decision to totally overturn Roe v Wade. Marchers took to the streets in many cities from coast to coast. One of these marches took place in Tampa, FL. Florida has passed a partial abortion ban that presumably goes into effect in July. Florida is becoming a major battleground state on gender and sexuality issues.

The Tampa protest on May 7 was organized by the Party for Socialism and Liberation (PSL), and assembled in front of the Federal courthouse downtown. From there protesters marched to an outdoor concert and held a rally there before returning. Passing motorists cheered the protesters in many places, and opposition was limited to a half-dozen theocrats that may have been Westboro Baptist plus two others with a noisy megaphone. The folks who may have been Westboro had a "God hates (something)" sign, which generally indicates Westboro.
