Some more pics from the Walk 4 Life counter demo

It has become apparent that anti-abortionists are largely affiliated with churches or religious organizations, and the Federal Constitution has a specific clause that says there must be a separation of church and state. So it seems that someone is not obeying Federal Law, which could open doors in the fight against abortion opponents, and maybe stop the onslaught of religious extremism, BUT.......
§SFPD eager to push people behind barriers

Freedom to Assemble does not mention barriers or fences.
§Use condoms

Using condoms can prevent the need for an abortion. Does the Catholic church promote the use of condoms? NOOOO.
They promote: Don't have sex until your ready for a kid, which is not only impractical it is downright ridiculous.
§Ridiculous symbolism

In some partsAmerica the use of riduculous symbolism is an invitation for tauntings and hate.

It's obvious this man came with his own agenda. He just doesn't like San Francisco. I bet he doesn't even care about abortion...
§Political party aligning themselves...

Does this mean that the American Independant Party has aligned themselves with the religious right. Once again Separation of church and state comes to play. So it is my conclusion this also means that they have become an illegitimate political party. Please take them off the voter application form.

Get real. Queers are now joining the ranks of religious extremists? The man holding this sign is probably a phoney MF.
§Huge signs.

Those signs made more of an impression with the tourists than the number of religious extremists attending the Walk for Life.

The counter-protesters made way more noise than the religious extremists.

The constitution also has something to say about freedom of religion. So what if religion influences someone's values. All opinions are influenced by some sort of belief system. Secular does not mean that religious groups can't speak out against injustice. Where were your complaints when the Poe spoke out against the Iraq war? The church also opposed the invasion of Iraq.

Injustice against women of color and women living in poverty? Rich white women will always be able to get an abortion if they want one.

Black and poor babies should not be aborted because of injustice in society. No life be it black, white or of rich or poor parents should be killed. This is the ultimate form of discrimination. Where does the pro abortion lobby stand on aborting female and disabled babies?
by but no!

The right wing is even opposed things that will prevent unintended pregnancies in the first place!

How can NOT having sex be impractical??? If you ain't doin it you ain't gonna get pregnant or std's! don't sleep around unless you are willing to take the consequences of your actions.

Keep your judgementalism to yourself. You don't tell others how to live their lives. Mind your own business. If you don't like sex, don't have it. The rest of us are normal healthy sexually active beings. Deal with it.

If you do have sex, please use a condom and water-based lubricant. That will protect you from a lot (but not all) of sexually-transmitted infections.

(at least for the time being) in-between now and next year's walk for life, you still have the right to get an abortion if you happen to get pregnant and want to discontinue the pregnancy. congratulations, and please don't fuck with our right to choose, because it's yours, too. see you in the streets next year.
