Lilly recently posted to Instagram that she attended the anti-vaccine mandate rally in Washington D.C. on the weekend of January 22nd and 23rd.

She posted, “I was in DC this weekend to support bodily sovereignty while Canadian truckers were rallying for their cross-country, peaceful convoy in support of the same thing.”

“I believe nobody should ever be forced to inject their body with anything, against their will, under threat of: violent attack, arrest or detention without trial, loss of employment, homelessness, starvation, loss of education, alienation from loved ones, excommunication from society…under any threat whatsoever,” Lilly declared.

She continued, “This is not the way. This is not safe. This is not healthy. This is not love. I understand the world is in fear, but I don’t believe that answering fear with force will fix our problems.”

Finally, she concluded, “I was pro choice before COVID and I am still pro choice today.”

Rolling Stone writer Ej Dickson tweeted, “In her Instagram post, Evangeline Lilly referred to herself as ‘pro choice.’ This is a very common (and disgusting) rhetorical trick among anti vaxxers — by co-opting the language of the repro rights movement, they think they can make their agenda more palatable to the left.”
