A new video shows feminists at the Women’s March screaming at a pregnant woman as she advocated for her and her unborn daughter’s rights Saturday in Washington, D.C.
Matthew Miller, a reporter with The Daily Caller, caught the incident on camera as he covered the protest against the confirmation of U.S. Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett. Pro-life and conservative groups held counter-protests at the same time in the capital.
Miller’s video shows a young pregnant mother with Students for Life of America playing her unborn daughter’s heartbeat over a sonogram outside the Supreme Court building. Both pro-life and pro-abortion protesters were gathered there in a large crowd.
“I would want to kill myself if I was that baby,” one of the protesters said in the video, referring to the pregnant woman. “Imagine using your child for political s—.”

The young pregnant woman told Miller that she received a lot of nasty comments from the so-called feminists. She said they yelled at her, told her to “f— off” and said she should abort her baby.
“That’s not feminism,” she told Miller. She said she went to the protest “to show that my daughter is a real human. Yes, she is in my body … but her life matters, too.
“This march, they’re not marching for preborn women,” she continued. “That’s why I’m here and my daughter is here. So they can have a voice as well. We want all women to be included, whether they’re born, unborn, black, white, different opinions, different genders – you name it.”
In a second video, Miller talked to a man in a pink hat who admitted to yelling at the pregnant woman because he disagrees with her about abortion.
Students for Life also posted a video of pro-life leaders and students being assaulted and harassed during the protest.
“We were spit on, spray painted, cursed out, twerked on, harassed, pushed around … but no matter the insults thrown, one thing is certain: We are the Pro-Life Generation and we will abolish abortion!” Students for Life leader Stephanie Schmitt-Stone said.
Earlier, NPR reported that a Trump supporter named Isabella De Luca of New York also was assaulted in a “scuffle” that left her with a “bloodied mouth” during the Women’s March protest.
Abortion activists are trying desperately to stop Barrett, a pro-life conservative woman, from being confirmed to the Supreme Court. If the Senate confirms her, which appears likely, she would solidify a strong 6-3 conservative majority on the high court.
