A Polarized Debate: March for Abortion Rights

Gainesville hosted one of over 650 women's marches that took place throughout the United States on Saturday, Oct. 2, 2021. Hundreds of people came out to Depot Park and the corner of University Avenue and 13th Street to participate in the North Central Florida March for Reproductive Rights & Justice. People chanted "My body! My choice!" and "What do we want? Women's rights! When do we want 'em? Now!"

"If for some reason [a woman] finds herself pregnant and decides that she's not able to take care of her body [or] take care of a developing fetus, then it is the most humane thing to terminate that pregnancy," Peggi Young, a protestor at the event, said.
