Although I truly accept and respect all of your opinions when it comes to abortion, I think your focus is slightly flawed. Although I respect and accept that you believe abortions are wrong, maybe you should shift focus away from that, and put that energy into sex education, allowing more women to get birth control, in general lowering the numbers of abortions. That way, you are still in fact keeping with your morals that abortion is wrong and this is how we can in fact stop it, but you aren't stepping on so many people's toes about it.
If sex ed. and the availability of birth control to all women had the energy that people tend to put forth for saying abortion is wrong and evil, then maybe we could really make a difference.

This is kinda an offpost. Just wanted to introduce myself and say hi to the fellow pro-lifers!
My name is Erica (HasikeLee
's sister) and I am pro-life.
Ok, i am sure you all figured that by the simple and obvious action of me joining this comm.
Thank you for your time, feel free to comment or(if you are moody and need to empty) flame me!

Now that the March for Choice is (fortunately) a thing of the past, I suppose it's time to change the community icon. Does anyone have a suggestion for a new icon that would be fitting? :)

"Modern Day Exodus"
This march doesn't bother me. Reason why? Im going to make a Biblical Alliteration about this. If you can think back to The Exodus with Moses and when Judah overthrew The Syrians, The odds were drastically against them. Pharos men were excellent warriors and so were The Syrians. Plus there numbers were extremely high. Against all odds, The Jewish People prevailed, reason why? God was on their side. Now fast forward to today, At this rally 100,000's of thousands of people from 60 countries along with celebrities were here to rally for abortion rights. There were a few Pro Life Activists at this event, but in much smaller numbers. Imagine the Hebrews being The Pro Life Activists and The Egyptians and The Syrians being The Pro-Choice Activists.Piece it all together, you could see a modern day event like this. My point is no matter how many numbers your going to throw at us, it wont matter. We have God on our side, and thats all that matters. Through unbelievable odds, God has helped his people succeed. "Those who kneel before God, can stand before anyone."
HAVE YOU BEEN IN THE PRO-LIFE MARCH??
Don't get me wrong at all, your analogy is very insightful and touching. Nevertheless, there is about twice as many pro-lifers EVERY January in D.C. since 1973! Simply because the biased media portrayed this pro-abortion march as 'hundreds of thousands' and the pro-lifers protesting as a 'much smaller' contingent doesn't mean we are at all in the minority.
In fact, according to polls and census, pro-lifers are in the majority.
I've been to several Jan. D.C. pro-life trips. In all of them combined, I have only seen two pro-abortion people at the pro-life march.
Contrast that to the thousands of pro-life people at the pro-abortion march.
Essentially, you have a random pro-abortion march, with fewer pro-choicers, but a higher number of pro-life protestors than there are pro-choice protestors at the pro-life march.
Nice how the media skipped over that fact.
It's all in the numbers. If the media and pro-abortion activists have to hide, lie and pretend that pro-lifers don't exist, what does that say about the strength of their position? If they are so good, so in the right, then why do they have to lie about the strength of their opposition?
You can post this if ya want and thanks for emailing. Current Mood: crushed

March for Choice
Is anyone planning on going to protest the March for CHoice? I want to go but want to make sure others are going. Have you registered yet if you are going? I was going with Operation Witness
|Friday, April 9th, 2004|
Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- Pro-abortion groups are making final preparations for a national march for abortion that they hope will attract hundreds of thousands of people seeking to keep abortion legal and defeat President George W. Bush in November. Meanwhile, pro-life groups are preparing their own events and activities in response, including focusing on how abortion hurts women.
Efforts to build momentum for the pro-abortion march have top officials with the leading abortion advocacy groups heading across the country to turn out local activists, including college students. ( Read more...Collapse )

I keep seeing the 'March For Women's Lives' flyers posted everywhere around where I live. (In NYC)
I've even seen them in Spanish.
I think what I find sickest about them is their name - 'March for Women's Lives'
I've always found it funny, how pro-choicers seem to try to avoid using the word 'abortion.'
It's always covered in some euphemism like 'reproductive rights,' 'women's health services' or now this latest incarnation 'women's lives.'
The reality of the March is that it's a march for abortion rights, yet you don't see those words plastered all over the place.
They use the word 'lives' in their slogan, in an attempt to what... appeal to saving lives - how ironic.
So... it would be unethical of me to take down the one's I see right? Current Mood: annoyed

"I regret my abortion" counter-protest on April 25th in Washington DC
This was recently posted by the woman who runs http://afterabortion.blogspot.com
Passing it on in case anyone here might want to participate or knows someone who would.Theresa and I are going to Washington, DC on Sunday April 25th to join the counter-rally standing peacefully opposite the N.O.W. rally formerly known as the “March For Choice.” We join many other folks from the Silent No More Awareness Campaign, ready to witness silently to the truth that abortion hurts women. There will be "I Regret My Abortion" signs to hold, plus "I Regret Lost Fatherhood" signs for men (fathers of aborted children are encouraged to join us) and for Pro-Lifers, students and other family members standing in support, there will be a new sign for them. We’ll arrive the day before, as there might be a press conference as well that day.
"Our goal is to be positive and life-affirming, letting our signs speak the truth about abortion and show that they do not represent all people in this country. Please remember this event in Washington DC is not for the faint of heart - there will be real activists there and we’ll stand for several hours that day." Wear very comfortable shoes.
There will be a meeting place in a nearby hotel, between 9ish and noon Sunday, where we will receive logistics and then go outside to give witness to the N.O.W. marchers as they arrive for their rally. No testimonies will be given this time. Bring water bottles and hats if the sun is shining!
There is a small block of rooms (going fast!) at this Hotel; you need to email Silent No More Awareness Campaign (SNMAC) to "register" (it’s free) to get this information. If you plan to attend we ask that you email them and let them know which sign you will be holding and the approximate time you plan to arrive at the meeting room. If you know when you're getting into town the day before, SNMAC can advise you of the press conference.
If you cannot go, please pray or think of us, if even just for a few minutes, between 9 am that morning and about 4 pm, when it's expected to end. And even for the women there who can't yet see what they've done to themselves, to their babies, and to other women who continue to "buy the lie."

Legal abortion death awareness
I was just looking through this memorial website to women who have died from legal abortions:http://www.ldi.org/Pro-life_Group/Pro-choice_Women/
Considering that the April march is intended to show how legal abortion supposedly "saves women's lives", it crossed my mind that pro-life protestors might want to hold up signs saying "In Memory of [a woman listed on the above site], Killed By Legal Abortion".
Thoughts? Any ideas on how this could be made more effective?

I just found this community today, and boy was I excited! I went to my first March for Life last week, and it was one of the most moving experiences of my life.
Just to introduce myself, my name is Colleen, and I'm a freshman at the University of Notre Dame. We had over two hundred students attend the march this year, and I know I for one am already excited for next year's.

we were meant to live for so much more...
You know- I am so thrilled about this community! I'm a little disturbed that it took so long for someone to come up with the idea, seeing as how the march has been going on for 30 years- and the pro-aborts haven't marched in...i don't know how long & they just came up with one.
but you know? who cares! There's one now & it's awesome!
Last week was my 2nd time going to the march & I'm still amazed at the unity I found there. I'm still amazed at how many people come to this every year. And the one thing I took home with me this year- you know I've heard for half my life that I [and everyone who was born after january 22, 1973] was a survivor of the American Holocaust which is abortion- but it didn't really hit home until this year. 1 out of every 3 people has been killed because of abortion.
This nation could have killed off the person who could have come up with the cure for AIDS or Cancer or any other disease.
In any case- I'm also just ecstatic that the message about Operation Witness is taking off like it is.
The guy who is doing it- Randall Terry
, he's my boss- I'm his personal secretary & he has been working on this for so long
& I'm just...amazed that the word is getting out like it is!
I sincerely hope that LiveJournal can get a huge group of people together for this counter-protest in April. I'm so happy to see that there are so many people- from my generation- that is taking up this cause & not backing down & who are willing to not just protest- not just march with fellow pro-lifers, but who are willing to do counter-protests like this.
it's going to be awesome. If you have any questions- just ask & I'll try to answer them! Current Mood: grateful
March for Choice
So who is planning on going to the Operation Witness march? I'd love to have a lj community going down there. I am planning to go and I will be driving from Connecticut with mistressaturn
(assuming she wants to go). I'm so happy that someone is organizing things like this. Current Mood: chipper
All credit goes to hasikelee
for coming up with the great idea of starting this community. I figure that I'll turn this community over to her if she wants it since it was her idea; I just started it ASAP because I wanted to make sure we got the name march4life. :)
So, anyway, feel free to post about your plans here!
