– Because we are in DC, I could not let the chance to tell how crushed I am over the Supreme Court’s potential decision go from me. Our bodies should never be in the hands of politicians, she said from the stage and continued:
– I hope we can use our voices to protect our right to have a safe abortion, which is a right many before us have worked so hard to get. It is so important, she continued.
