Tue Dec 14 2004Walk for Life Comes to San Francisco on January 22nd
Tue Dec 14 2004Anti-Choice Activists to Observe Roe v. Wade Anniversary
January 22nd, 2005 will be the the 32nd anniversary of the Roe v Wade, the court decision that legalized abortion in the United States. "Walk for Life West Coast", a city-wide anti-choice event, is also scheduled for that date. Last year, women nationwide celebrated the first "I'm not sorry I had an abortion day". Some pro-choice activists feel that it's time to do it again as one of the ways of countering the Walk for Life's messaging. Elizabeth Creely says, "it's clear that women (and men) who have had abortions need to continue to defend our right to reproduce on our own terms." Walk for Life's website states: "Walk to challenge the belief that abortion is a good choice for Women. Walk to show that women--and all people--deserve better than abortion. Walk to proclaim that Life is the best and only choice!" People in the Bay Area believe that Walk for Life's message is incorrect - that women should have the right to choose whether or not to terminate a pregnancy- and that the Walk for Life should be countered in the streets of San Francisco on January 22nd. The SF Board of Supervisors has declared that January 22nd will be Stand Up for Choice Day
Walk for Life: On Saturday, January 22, there will be speakers at 11am at Justin Herman Plaza, with the walk beginning at 12pm, and an "Information Faire" at the end of Walk at Marina Green.
