Iowa teens talk about impact of Roe v. Wade being overturned | #socialmedia | #children

When the U.S. Supreme Court overturned its Roe v. Wade ruling, some Burlington teenagers became plunged into politics watching their social media feeds fill with their favorite content creators making their thoughts on abortion clear.

Sara Woodall, 15, was among them. She quickly made the choice to attend Burlington’s Girls Just Want to Have Fundamental Rights evening protest on July 5.

“I did not care about anything that had to do with presidents, politics, government or anything along those lines,” Woodall said of her life before June 24.

That was when the Supreme Court overturned 50 years of precedent with its decision in Dobbs v. Jackson’s Women’s Health Organization. 

Over the following days and weeks, protests were held throughout the United States in favor and opposed to overturning Roe v. Wade, including the two in Burlington on July 5. Approximately 200 people attended the evening protest, Woodall among them.
