Sun Dec 6 2009 (Updated 12/15/09)Die-In at the Ferry Building Protests Healthcare Bill's Abortion Ban
Sun Dec 6 2009 (Updated 12/15/09)Dozens "Die" as Billionaire Satirists Mock People in Need of Healthcare
Demonstrators staged a die-in at the feet of busy shoppers in front of one of San Francisco's busiest markets on December 5th. Posed by their side, members of satirist group "Billionaires for Wealthcare" dramatized the disparate treatment of rich and poor in America's healthcare system.
Activists for a single payer healthcare system that would provide medical care to people at all income levels said that the Stupak amendment to the US Congress' health care reform plan is an attack on women's rights, but especially on poor women's access to reproductive care. Their protest started when they fell as if dying in front of San Francisco's Ferry Building, then continued as demonstrators rose to solemnly march through the crowded farmer's market. They carried the mock coffin of a victim of poor healthcare.
