Tue Jan 15 2008 (Updated 01/19/08) Anti-Choice Organizers Focus on Women's Choice Clinic in Leadup to Oakland Conference
Oakland Anti-Choice March Accuses Pro-Choice Clinic of Participating in Black Genocide On Friday January 18th, anti-choicers gathered for the first-ever "Standing Up For Life" conference/march in Oakland. This march placed its influence on the African American community of the East Bay. Dr. Alveda C. King and Dr. Clenard Childress, founder of Blackgenocide.org, an anti-choice website comparing abortion to the next holocaust, were the event's scheduled headliners. Comparisons with genocide are being used with misleading statistics to accuse abortion providers of racist practices. imc_photo.gif Photos: 1 | 2 | 3

Standing Up for Life had planned to march past the Women's Choice Clinic, which is an avid supporter of all people of color, religions, genders, sizes and abilities. WCC focuses on community health empowerment, and it plans fight these accusations and stand up "against the patriarchal, RACIST, police state that 'would rather see us die than live healthy, free lives.'"

Those who support Oakland as a pro-choice community confronted the anti-choice tables that had been set up in Frank Ogawa Plaza at 14th and Broadway (near 12th St./City Center Bart). Participants brought their own pro-choice signs and confronted the content of the anti-choice messaging.
