I'm protesting a protest outside of an abortion clinic tomorrow... UPDATED!!!

Posted by   + Show Post
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!

That's an awesome idea. I'll find out if I can do.that. Thank you!


Quoting muslimahpj:

Maybe you could offer to volunteer as a buffer for the ladies going into the clinic? I know one of the clinics near here has people who will escort the women in and out of the clinic and stand between them and the protestors and try to talk over what they are saying.

Find something better , more productive, to do with your time. 

I bet you would be out there with your own sign.

Ash...............I love  ya, sweetie.

A simple sign pointing out that there are those who do not judge, who do not condemn another for making a choice.  That you stand up for their right to that choice.

Not like you need to be told but you are doing is indeed productive.
