About 100 people protested Saturday in Bainbridge Island about the new abortion law in Texas.
The Women’s March by the state ferries terminal regarded the basic human right of freedom over our own bodies, said Holly Brewer of BI, one of the protesters.
“Adult women deserve the right to decide – with their doctors when necessary – what happens to their bodies,” Brewer said in an email to the Bainbridge Island Review.
Similar protests took place nationwide. Protesters say they will not accept the Texas law banning abortions and rewarding whistleblowers – and the Supreme Court allowing it. The bill threatens Roe vs. Wade and other states could implement similar laws, they say.
“We need women to be allowed the dignity to make choices about their health care,” Brewer said.
She asked those who support this movement to contact Sens. Patty Murray and Marie Cantwell at 202-224-3121.
