And I need idea for signs! There's a pro life protest tomorrow at one of our 2 abortion clinics. A group of fellow pro choice heathens have decided to stand in their opposition. The only signs I've come up with are "I'll be here for hugs when you're done" and "it's your body, your choice" got any others? I have to leave by 1:00 central time so any input would be awesome!


UPDATE:

So, we just wrapped up over here and it went extremely well. We talked to the staff and they gave us permission to escort the ladies in and out of the building. We stood with signs that said 'we will walk with you for support' We all brought our iPods and headphones so the girls could wear them and not be exposed to the nastiness being spewed their way. We held up large cardboard signs at our sides to block the PL signs. I even got a hug **sniffle**. We handed out cards with our phone numbers, local crisis centers, and health departments to access birth control. We also handed out pamphlets on birth control. It was a peaceful day and I'm thankful we got to shield women who were already going through a difficult time from ugliness. We used many suggestions that came from you ladies. Thank you all so much!

I would bring a few blank signs and some markers to the actual protest. That way you can play off of the things that the pro-lifers have written.

Btw: I love that you are doing this

I've always liked "if the fetus you 'save' is gay, will you still fight for its rights?" when I'm in a snarky mood. Or a picture of a uterus that says 'don't tread on me'. *snicker*

Would you say that to the pro life protestors as well? Letting women know that they aren't alone isn't a waste of my time. Thank you though.
