march for life

Video: 2013 March for Life

Throngs of anti-abortion activists gathered on the National Mall Friday (Jan. 25) for a rally marking the 40th anniversary of the Supreme Court decision to legalize abortion. After speeches by new March for Life President Jeanne Monahan and political and religious leaders, they marched to the steps of the high court.

Creepiest pro-choice video possible?

I suppose there are other ways the abortion rights movement could undermine its cause, but the video posted below seems pretty effective, and ironic: just as pro-lifers are debating whether they should use graphic images, since they turn off so many people, the Center for Reproductive Rights takes the opposite tack with this send-up of a turn on. In it, actor Mehcad Brooks does an unctuous come on to the Roe v. Wade decision, which turned 40 this week. Husband to wife? Or gigolo to a client? Why didn’t they just send around a sonogram of Cecile Richards?
