A viral video showing a man telling abortion rights protesters that “your body is mine” and “you’re having my baby” has sparked outrage on social media. The Supreme Court leak prompted many more protesters than usual to gather outside the Old St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City on Saturday.
Closed captions on the clip described the man as “FDNY” (New York Fire Department), but it is not clear if the man is actually affiliated with the city’s fire department. He appeared to be wearing a fleece bearing FDNY insignia in the clip. The FDNY has been contacted for comment.

If there was any doubt about the ideology driving anti-abortion perspectives, this @FDNY firefighter just put it right out there. “Not your choice, not your body, your body is mine”. The absolute glee he takes in saying it should disturb literally every woman everywhere. https://t.co/kzVO39om2J

If this guy really is @FDNY, he’s gotta go. Imagine the terror a rape survivor might feel if this guy, who says he owns women’s bodies and forces them bear his children, comes into her home. He made his choice. He chose threats over his job. He’s literally unsafe. https://t.co/Ubj7MGLkDg

Anti abortion extremists met with pro choice clinic defenders. This guy is an America First Groyper and member of FDNY! “the court decided you lose. You have no choice. Not your body not your choice. Your body is mine and you’re having my baby!” #RoeVWadeprotest HIT THE STREETS pic.twitter.com/jH8wkJiwMz
