Asked at Chico State.

Disappointing, but not surprising. I’m hopeful that it energizes people to become more active in politics, to work together to support women’s rights to protect their own bodies and have a choice over what we do with our bodies.

A woman’s body is a woman’s body, and she should be allowed to make her own choices.

It’s annoying to hear that I don’t have a say over my body anymore. The people on the Supreme Court can decide what I do with my own uterus. This overturn of Roe v. Wade is going to kill a lot more women. It’s just really disheartening to hear about.

First and foremost, I think it’s a mistake. Regardless of their decision, their reasoning just doesn’t make any sense. [If we can’t] make enough noise to make sure that the overturning doesn’t happen, we can try to make change on the state level to make sure things functionally stay the same.
