Many thanks from BACORR to all the other individuals and groups who endorsed and to those of you who came out in support. Remember- if the Raging Grannies can do it, so can you!

On January 20th, the grassroots Pro-choice community came out in support of a woman's right to choose. They were met by thousands of anti-choice supporters, many bused in from places as far away as Nevada and the Oregon border with the help of the Catholic Church.

They were met with spirit and with righteous anger, but also with humor and creativity. We need to work with others in our community to make them remember that an injury to one is an injury to all. Please join with BACORR and our partners in planning for next year.

Wow! Whoever decided on doing the "Theater of the Unborn" wasn't using their head. When someone makes fun of someone giving birth and (the representation of) a real human baby, that is a huge turnoff. Just because you're pro-choice, does'nt make you inhumane. From my perspective, this skit was extremely anti-woman! How fucking rude!

YOU DON'T REPRESENT ME!
by great!

a creative way of looking at extremism with humor. but since the right to lifers don't have a sense of humor, I can see where it might not be their cup o tea!

These are the groups who claim sensitivity to those in difficult situations. This was appalling. Extremism disguised as satire. The skit was in bad taste. Abortion compounds problems.

When they can display sensitivity to a woman's autonomy over her own body, then they can blather about "sensitivity"!
