Sat Jan 22 2005 (Updated 01/24/11)Thousands Turn Out in San Francisco to Defend Roe v. Wade
Sat Jan 22 2005 (Updated 01/24/11)Anti-Choice Demonstration in San Francisco Protested by Militant Pro-Choice Crowd
1/22/2005: Several thousand people gathered for a Roe v. Wade Anniversary Demonstration that included a rally on Market Street and a march to the location of an anti-choice rally. After the march, participants lined the Embarcadero as the "pro-lifers" paraded towards the Fisherman's Wharf tourist district. The route of the parade was stopped twice by pro-choice protesters. Police kept the women's rights advocates out of the street as much as possible, divided them up on sidewalks, and escorted the anti-choice march through Fort Mason, down Marina, to the park area where a post-march celebration of hatred of women's right to choose when to have a child was to be held. The pro-choice march was eventually allowed through Fort Mason and headed to the Marina Green.
