Thu Jan 29 2015 (Updated 01/27/16)Abortion Wars on the Streets of SF
Thu Jan 29 2015 (Updated 01/27/16)Anti-Abortion Forces Bused in to San Francisco Counter-Protested by Pro-Choice Activists
The war over abortion once again hit the streets of San Francisco on January 24. Ever since 2005 the anti-abortion religious community has been holding an annual gathering called the "Walk for Life" on or near the anniversary of the Roe vs Wade Supreme Court decision. The pro-lifers come in buses from all over California, and other parts of the West to push their message that “abortions should be banned by law." Only a small group of SF’ers, compared to the pro-lifers, get out and counter-protest, but they still do it every year.
