In Milwaukee and across U.S., Women’s March focuses on abortion rights


A marcher in Washington, D.C., carries a sign reading: MY BODY MY CHOICE GET OVARY IT. Marches and other demonstrations in favor of abortion rights were held across the country Saturday.

Marching alongside hundreds of others in downtown Milwaukee on Saturday, Summer Van Matre held up a sign that read: “Abortion saved my life.” 

Van Matre speaks openly about an assault that led to a pregnancy at 16. She recalls walking to a clinic with her father, knowing she had the support of her parents and was making the right decision. 

“I was set not to graduate high school,” she said. “I was set to live a life that was not what I wanted for myself.”

She acknowledged the procedure was not a happy one. 

“But I graduated college, I work in finance now with a salaried job and I have good health benefits,” said Matre, from Milwaukee. “I could not have done this without getting an abortion.”
