A sign reads, "Pregnancy begins with a penis; regulate that"

Part of a Day of Action, the Seattle rally was one of 450 “Bans Off Our Bodies” events held nationally on May 14. The Planned Parenthood Action Fund and other reproductive-rights groups organized the events in response to a leaked U.S. Supreme Court opinion that would overturn federal protections for abortion.

A sign reads, "Fuck off."

Protesters continued with an unplanned march through Capitol Hill.
