Countering Operation Rescue
At SF medical convention inside the Masonic Center hundreds of doctors gathered, including several national abortion providers. Middle America's Operation Rescue showed up in caravans to demonstate their rabid opposition to abortion rights. I got a phone call from the RCP and R&R that it was necessary to come participate in a counter protest in support of abortion providers.
This banner really pissed off the Christian zombies which led to a lot of screaming back and forth.
This guy kept repeatedly insisting that my friend and I must be lovers...since after all we were defending a woman's right to choose (?). He didn't stop until we asked him, "Why? Are you looking for a date?" He abruptly backed away.
This woman began talking about the bible so we asked her, "If you were to be raped, would marry your rapist just like the bible says you should?" She replied, "1) I would certainly carry the baby, and 2) I simply would never be raped because I've decided it will never happen to me."
He was serious. This man not only was ranting about "Death To Abortion Providers," he was also avidly proclaiming the same fate for homosexuals in the same breath.
