As part of protests nationwide, an estimated ten thousand people joined two marches for women's abortion rights in San Francisco. At a Civic Center event on the steps of the library, a rally drew several thousand people who then marched up Market Street to the Embarcadero.

Planned Parenthood, one of the organizing groups, felt it necessary to have a large number of "monitors" controlling the march, getting in the way of photographers.

At 1pm another rally, organized by RiseUp4AbortionRights, began at 24th and Mission St. They marched up Mission, briefly intersected a march for Palestinian rights, then continued on to Dolores Park.
