A group of abortion activists ate handfuls of abortion pills outside the Supreme Court in protest of its hearing about the constitutionality of Roe v Wade on Wednesday.
Standing in front of a banner that read “We Are Taking Abortion Pills Forever”, the activists chanted “Abortion pills forever!”

As the Supreme Court began their oral arguments over the Mississippi-based Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case, activists from both sides of the abortion issue demonstrated in front of the Supreme Court building in Washington, separated by a steel barricade and some police.
Here on west side of Supreme Court, hundreds of pro-choice and pro-life activists.
Police have barricades splitting into two sections.
