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!

 I'll say Thank You for anyone who wasn't able to do so themselves.

So did you use any of my ideas?

Some random pregnant woman decide to get an abortion she didn't want because of us? Sorry, had to throw the jab out there because I'm sure someone will accuse you of trying to kill wanted babies just for kicks. Pro choice people don't enjoy killing helpless babies. That's my pastime so don't blame them

That's an amazing thing to do. I live in a very liberal state and we rarely ever (can't remember any in the last 10 years) have people protest at abortion clinics.

Why is it that pro-lifers feel they can force their beliefs on everyone else. No pro-choice people tell pro-lifers they HAVE to have an abortion but they tell people they HAVE to have kids. And honestly the pro-lifers I know are the same ones who hate welfare and think it should be abolished. Makes sense right? Lets make it so abortions are illegal so if someone accidentally gets pregnant they have to have the child. Even if they can't afford it - nothing like poor starving children to make pro-lifers happy

Yep! One of our signs said 'we have your back' Ireally liked that one. We also used 'there's no shame in your choice.'
