Road Diaries: March For Life Where We Sidewalk Counsel
Posted on January 17, 2019
You know how a bunch of jerks screaming outside local abortion clinic isn’t ACTUALLY gonna fundamentally change people to your will (but is gonna scare and intimidate some people into not going in, which, you know, is entirely the point, obvs not helping). Well, we decided that today WE’D BE THE PEOPLE YELLING OUTSIDE THE BUILDING.
More specifically, we went outside the hotel where all the “March For Lifers” were congregating this morning and raised some hell. “You don’t have to go in there,” we yelled. “We love you, we have some literature here for you!” (We handed them our truly great zine designed by the amazing Jaye McBride, which we’ll share on here tomorrow after the Stork Ball tonight… more reports coming soon.) “God wouldn’t want you to keep lying.” “God loves facts.” “We’ll adopt your fiction and make it facts.” “Does your husband know you’re in there!?”
We think that at least a few people realized, “Hey, people yelling in front of where we’re trying to get into very annoying.”
One teen from her window tried to yell “Roe v. Wade has got to go” to us… but you know she couldn’t be as loud as us.
And then one 7 month pregnant woman came up to us and said she would do everything possible to protect her baby. AND WE SAID GOOD, WE ARE HAPPY YOU HAVE A WANTED PREGNANCY. But also maybe go to the climate change march if you’re having a new baby! We only have so much time to ensure Earth is habitable in 50 more years.
If you want to get in on the fun and call some people out come out with us tomorrow if you’re in DC to help us counter protest the March for Life! They’re full of hate and energy, we’ve got to show them we’re so so much more powerful! Or Come to our event at Eaton Hall where we’re watching “She’s Beautiful When She’s Angry” and hearing from a great panel of people!
All fired up and want somewhere to go?
