During oral arguments for the first Supreme Court abortion case since Justice Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed, abortion activists rallied outside of the courthouse to celebrate themselves and their pro-abortion views.
According to a video segment of the event posted by Grabien, one of the speakers, Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), delivered a particularly loud sermon during which she condemned undisclosed individuals for being “obsessed” with her body, and recounted her pro-abortion clapbacks from her time as a Michigan lawmaker.
“This past year, I realized — my, my, my are they obsessed with our bodies, how we talk, how we look, what we stand for — I mean this type of policing of our bodies is so interconnected to all the social justice movements all around the country,” said Tlaib.
“You know I, in the legislature, in the Michigan legislature for six year, used to say to people, ‘Yo yo, you know what? You’re so freakin obsessed with what I decide to do with my body, maybe you shouldn’t even want to have sex with me,’ or with you, or with any woman,” Tlaib declared, as she gestured toward the cheering crowd.
According to National Review, the oral arguments for June Medical Services v Russo have drawn large crowds, and both pro-life activists and pro-abortion activists have rallied in front of the court house. The plaintiffs in the case have challenged a Louisiana law that requires clinics to obtain hospital admitting privileges in case of a botched abortion.
According to Grabien, during one portion of the event, speaker Renee Brecey Sherman rallied the crowd to celebrate “future abortion providers,” and then gave a special shout-out to members of the crowd who have had abortions.
“A special shout-out to — Where my people who’ve had abortions? Where y’all at?,” said Sherman, who received affirming shouts back from the crowd. “Nothing about this work is going to be without us! Woo!”
Sherman proceeds to explain to the crowd that having an abortion was “one of the best decisions” of her entire life.
“So as I said, I had an abortion when I was 19. It was honestly one of the best decisions of my life. I was simply not ready to become a parent, and that’s really all you need to know,” said Sherman.

According to Sherman’s website, the activist has also embraced the title of the “Beyonce of Abortion Storytelling.”
As The Blaze has previously reported, Sherman previously made other “eye-popping” pro-abortion declarations, including one in January about teaching children about abortions in an “age-approriate way.”
“I’ve talked to my 5-year-old niece about my work and abortion in an age-appropriate way. She understands that kids are a handful and sometimes people don’t want to be pregnant. She gets it because it’s quite simple,” tweeted Sherman.
