One shouts, "Breona!" and the rest callback, "Taylor!"

"Jacob!"..."Blake!"

"George!"..."Floyd!"

All players and staff support the walkout. #SMTTT ImageImage
"Love Us Beyond the Field" reads one sign #SouthernMiss football players held at today's #BlackLivesMatter   walkout march. Image
Southern Miss Linebacker Swayze Bozeman: "I've always supported #BlackLivesMatter. But I'm here because these are my brothers. This is my family." Image

Sorry for the misspelling, was walking around at the protest and didn't double check my tweet.

NEW: The parents of a teen Mississippi rape victim had to travel 500 miles to help their daughter get an abortion in Illinois.

The family told @MeganWestWAPT that they learned their daughter was pregnant three days after the six-week legal limit passed.

The parents, whom WAPT referred to only as “Jane Doe” and “John Doe,” said they did not know about the Dobbs ruling or that abortion is now illegal in Mississippi until after they sought help for their daughter.

“I called my OB-GYN, the one who delivered my babies,” the girl's mother tolD WAPT. “... It was the ugliest feeling having to explain to the doctor that delivered your child that she was raped, and then him having to tell you he can’t do anything to help."
