Liberal filmmaker Michael Moore took his “Rumble” podcast to the women who lambasted the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, often chiding Republicans and declaring that “guns have more rights” than people.
“This is complete bullshit,” said one woman, while another said, “I dream that one day women will have the same rights as guns.”
Moore, who lives in Traverse City, Michigan, said his town hadn’t voted for a Republican presidential candidate in nearly 20 years, but was surrounded by an area of ”very hateful” people. “.
“We’re surrounded by all these big red zones of very hateful voters – angry white men. Not easy,” Moore said before telling listeners that hundreds of protesters gathered in his city on Saturday to rally against the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Moore then went silent and played the audio of the women who attended the rally, saying he wanted to give them a voice.
“It was quite disturbing…I was in shock that something like this could happen,” said a moved woman when asked why she attended the rally. “It’s been a precedent for so long and I kind of feel like I took it for granted.”
Another participant said, “It’s just a little scary to think about what else could change,” noting that same-sex marriage is something she wants to defend immediately in case the Supreme Court intends to make other changes.
One woman said she was personally “in conflict” with abortion, but wanted to support her daughters and granddaughters.

‘We can’t take a step back as people,’ she said as her husband said he was pro-life but came to support women in his family who felt differently .
Another attendee called abortion a “life-saving medical procedure” and brought a sign to the event stating, “Someone you know had an abortion.”
“This decision is just heartbreaking because it feels like women, we don’t matter,” she said. “A little collective anger therapy.”
One participant described her outfit, which featured blood-soaked shorts and a hanger.
“It’s sort of a representation of what was happening and what’s going to happen now,” she said. “It’s ridiculous, abortion is health care. It really is, there’s nothing else.”
Another added: “It’s scary to live in a country that takes away your rights as a human being. Very dehumanizing as a woman… so called the ‘land of the free’ but I don’t I don’t really feel free right now.”
Other women described feeling “shock”, “rage”, “desperation” and called for a continued “struggle” after the Supreme Court ruling.
DEMOCRATIC AND REPUBLICAN STRATEGISTS WEIGH IMPLICATION OF SUPREME COURT ABORTION RULING ON MID-TERM ELECTIONS
“We’re seeing a terrible, terrible backsliding, and it’s a minority group, and it’s a group of people lying, and it’s just awful,” one woman said.
Annulling Roe v. Wade’s landmark 1973 ruling that declared the constitution protected the right to have an abortion sent shockwaves across the United States and quickly led to speculation about how the ruling will affect midterms .
The decision came in the opinion of the court in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which centered on a Mississippi law that banned abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy. The Republican-run state of Mississippi has asked the Supreme Court to overturn a lower court ruling that ended the 15-week abortion ban.
“I’m here primarily to expose the Republican Party as a hypocrite. They call themselves pro-life, but they’re really pro-birth because if they were really pro-life, we’d have easier access to contraceptives, we’d have more more formula babies on our shelves we would have a better fostering system better adoption care better process of everything they don’t care about the baby after it’s born they just want to control the female body and people with wombs,” one woman said.
Moore’s podcast then aired the thoughts of dozens of women who have criticized the Supreme Court, called on voters to support Democrats and repeated the talking point that “guns have more rights” than women.
Moore ended his podcast by saying, “This won’t hold up, they made a huge mistake, and we’re going to fire as many Republicans as we can in November. There will be a mass movement. ”

Earlier this month, Moore made news on his podcast when he called for the repeal of the Second Amendment and offered his plan to successfully remove “virtually all firearms from civilian ownership.”
“We need to start a movement to repeal the Second Amendment and replace it with something that says it’s not about anyone’s right to own a gun, it’s the right of all of us to be protected from gun violence,” Moore said. “We have a right to live…if you’re afraid of someone breaking in, get a dog…you don’t need a gun.”
