A few thousand took to the streets of downtown San Antonio early Friday in protest of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, the 1973 landmark abortion decision. Trigger abortion bans immediately took effect in at least eight states, with more states expected to do the same in the coming days. The rally and march in San Antonio was organized by Mujeres Marcharán Coalition and started at the federal courthouse on West Nueva Street.

These photos capture the energy and anger of the two pro-choice marches downtown, and I thank you for taking them, Ben. It was great that so many people made signs and loudly marched though it was 101-degrees during the 2nd one. “Forced birth is not pro-life” sums it up. Never stop until a majority of voters hears and understands.
