Stanford Planned Parenthood held a protest in support of reproductive rights on Friday. The protest brought Stanford students and affiliates together, following the rallies held by Stanford Law School students and Stanford Planned Parenthood and undergraduates earlier in the week. A group of students also planned a counter protest in response.

Daily photographers Ananya Navale, Bryan Monge Serrano and Thomas Yim captured the student demonstrations.

The stairs of White Plaza are decorated with multi-colored chalk. The first visible step reads "Choose life," the second reads "Roe v. Wade is a scourge on the...," the third reads "Child sacrifice? Cringe af bruh," the fourth reads "I love baby murderer tears," and the fifth reads "Your body, not your choice." The charcoal color of the stairs and the dark ambience provides a stark contrast to the colorful chalk.
