Washington Post's article "Rallying for One Massive Rally-
Abortion Rights Activists Hope to Descend on Mall in 'Historic' Numbers"
If anyone succeeded in getting 1 million people on the National Mall and on Penn. Ave. in D.C., it'd be two layers deep, people standing on people's shoulders. I.E., there isn't enough room, and you know that if you've been there. Yeah, they say they had that in '92. And I believe everything the "pro-choice" organizers tell me. Uh-huh.
Listen to the Wash.Post falling all over itself with its loving, elaborate coverage of their massive campaign machine to drum up attendance. The press never gave the details on how many busses and trains and planes were carrying how many passengers to D.C. for the March for Life in any year.
Don't need to be psychic to predict this: next Sunday night on the major news channels and Monday in all the 100s of liberal rags, you'll see huge, color, opportunistic photos of whoever showed up, splashing in front of our eyes, covering the top halves of every front page and leading each "newscast," not a pro-life counter-rally person in sight, and whatever numbers are quoted will be exaggerated upward. Bias is as bias does.
"Eleanor Smeal, 64, president of the Feminist Majority and former president of NOW...'We believe we are within one vote of losing Roe v. Wade in the United States.'"
Please keep those of us who are going to be in the peaceful, silent counter-rally by Silent No More in your prayers: "[Pro-abortion] march sponsors have invited the participation of anti-globalization groups who will already be in Washington DC to protest the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank. Massive violence has followed wherever the anti-globalists gather, including in Genoa, Italy, where anti-globalists rioted and one demonstrator was killed." The Washington Post said one of these groups, Mobilization for Global Justice, plans on "having a contingent at the women's march." "MANNY FERNANDEZ WASHINGTON POST - Groups opposed to the policies of the International Monetary Fund and World Bank announced plans for a series of protests in downtown Washington to coincide with the two institutions' spring meetings this month. Activists with the D.C.-based Mobilization for Global Justice, which helped organize the raucous anti-globalization protests in April 2000 that led to mass arrests and disrupted parts of downtown, are planning rallies and teach-ins April 21 through 25.
All we're going to do is stand still, in one place, at a respectful distance, completely silent. PA women will be holding "I Regret My Abortion" signs, men will hold "I Regret Lost Fatherhood" signs, others will hold signs saying "I Am Pro-Life." We do not want confrontations of any sort, and will do and say nothing to invite or warrant them.
We really need your prayers, best wishes and thoughts all weekend, for the trips down and back, but esp. this Sunday, esp. from noon to 4 pm, but also from about 9 am on. Even if you just stop for a minute and remember us.
