3rd Annual "Walk For Life - West Coast" Anti-Abortion Demonstration
by Rubble
Sunday Jan 28th, 2007 11:50 AM
5 MP3s of audio from the demonstration and counterdemonstration for "Walk For Life". Once again, upward towards 10,000 church-funded anti-abortion demonstrators came to town on the anniversary of Roe vs Wade with their repressive message "women deserve better than abortion", and were met by a much smaller, but highly spirited pro-reproductive rights counter demonstration reminding that "San Francisco is a pro-choice town".
