Marchers were heard chanting “My body, my choice!” in footage making the rounds online – echoing a slogan of pro-abortion activists – as well as “No means no!” and the more direct “F**k Joe Biden and De Blasio!” referring to the president and the New York mayor. Others were seen hoisting a banner opposing “medical mandates” and “digital passports” while demanding “health freedom now!”
