This production marked the one-year anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court hearing oral arguments in the Dobbs v. Jackson case, in which the court held that the Constitution of the United States does not confer a right to abortion.

Nearly 22 million women have already lost the legal right to abortion in their states. Tens of thousands have already been forced to have children they otherwise would not have had.

Demonstrations were held at more than a dozen US locations in front of federal court buildings on December 1, a national day of action. Federal courthouses were chosen for protest sites because, "We cannot rely on the courts, we must rely on ourselves," said Reiko Redmonde of Rise Up for Abortion Rights-Bay Area which spearheaded the event. The Raging Grannies contributed to the production with their songs and by playing in street theater roles. Other organizations involved were Progressive Unity and Ruth Sent Us.
