Mon Jan 17 2011 (Updated 01/24/11) Women's Rights Activists to Counter Annual "Walk for Life"
On 38th Anniversary of Roe v. Wade, Anti-Choice March in San Francisco January 22nd marked the 38th anniversary of the passage of Roe v. Wade. The anti-choice, anti-gay Walk for Life organization bused people into the city of San Francisco for a march in support of criminalizing abortions. Pro-Choice activists countered them with a rally and march along the city's waterfront.

This was the 7th year an organized march against womens' choice was held in the city; every year a vociferous group of protesters has demonstrated nearby. This year's Pro-Choice rally started at Harry Bridges Plaza in front of the Ferry Building at 11am.
