Highlights from Anna Eskamani's "rapid-fire" panel of abortion-rights advocates
Wednesday, June 29, 2022
Democratic state Rep. Anna Eskamani paused her Monday abortion-rights rally at The Beacham in downtown Orlando, organized to protest the Supreme Court's Friday decision overturning Roe v. Wade (the 1973 decision legalizing abortion) for a quick Q&A panel with four trans, queer and female abortion rights activists.
They did a quick "temperature check."
"How're you feeling?" Eskamani asked the group. "Raw," one panelist answered candidly.
And they talked about abortion action funds, the importance of storytelling and why overturning Roe is only the beginning.
Here are the highlights.
