Pro-choice Activists

Recommended Posts

Hundreds of pro-choice organizations, spearheaded by the National Organization for Women (NOW), NARAL Pro-Choice America (formerly the National Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action League), the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), and Planned Parenthood Federation of America, have organized another national march for this Sunday, April 25. Together, they plan to send a message to policymakers: protect women’s fundamental right to privacy — or we’ll vote you out of office. This time around, organizers are expecting more than one million participants from around the country (including about 10,000 from Massachusetts) to converge on Washington, all of them mobilized by the Bush administration’s unprecedented assault on reproductive rights.


Some measures that blatantly undermine abortion rights, like the "partial-birth" abortion ban and the Unborn Victims of Violence Act, have drawn condemnation from almost every pro-choice activist. But some peripheral attacks on reproductive rights haven’t raised as much public outcry. From domestic legislation to foreign policy, it seems pro-life advocates are tinkering with all areas of reproductive rights, making incremental changes that may snowball into a juggernaut.


"It’s all part of the same momentum," says Massachusetts Planned Parenthood communications manager Erin Rowland of the multi-front attacks. "The anti-choice community feels like the White House is behind them."

I saw the gallery of the march on your site. I urge every visitor to the site to at least look at it. The pictures are very powerful and give you a good indication of what the environment that day was.




There is also a pro-life gallery. Thanks for putting both sides of the issue up on the site.
