A group of young women led chants about their love for the abortion industry and ingested what they claimed were abortion pills outside of the United States Supreme Court building as Justices heard arguments in a landmark case that could gut the controversial Roe v. Wade ruling.
“Abortion pills forever,” the women, purportedly affiliated with the pro-death group Shout Your Abortion, chanted outside the Supreme Court, standing in front of banner reading “we are taking abortion pills forever.” Amidst their chants, the women also began ingesting what appeared to be phony abortion pills, with some showing off small boxes labeled as “abortion pills.”
Video of the demonstration was posted to Twitter by PBS personality and self-described feminist writer Erin Matson, who praised the stunt as an “epic action.” Matson is also the executive director of ReproAction, a pro-abortion organization that seeks to help as many women kill their unborn children as possible.
Even pro-abortion liberals blasted the video when it was posted to Twitter, accusing the “activists” of trivializing abortion and the end of a baby’s life, with one user writing that he “feels sad” for the young women who so identify with the abortion industry.

Inside the Supreme Court, Justices are hearing arguments in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson County Women’s Health Organization, brought to the court as a result of Mississippi’s heartbeat law, which forbids abortion at any point after a heartbeat is detected in an unborn child. The case marks what many consider to be the best chance in a generation at a serious gutting of the Roe v Wade decision, and if the court sides with Mississippi, abortion legality could be decided on a state-by-state basis.
A total of 12 states have so-called “trigger laws” banning or heavily limiting abortion already in place, which would take effect automatically if Roe v. Wade is overturned by the Supreme Court. Observers say an additional 9 states could follow suit with abortion-limiting or banning legislation after a decision in Mississippi’s favor is made.
