She continued: ‘This decision has plunged me and every other woman in this country into deep despair. Now the supreme court has decided that women’s rights are no longer constitutional rights. In fact we have less rights [than] a gun. I am scared for my daughters.’

Strong enough to overcome. And so we shall overcome! We will find a way to make it a federal law to protect abortion rights! Ladies are you ready to fight?’
