Blogger Sean Fitzpatrick attended the January 2005 March for Life and Silent No More Awareness gathering in Washington, DC and wrote up his observations yesterday:

After the abortion came drug and alcohol abuse, depression, promiscuity, infertility, miscarriages, inability to bond with children. It is the language of abuse, of post-traumatic stress disorder. There are a few men among them, who had allowed their partner to have an abortion.

As it gets dark and cold, they step up on the podium and read their statements. They are in various stages of grief and reconciliation. The little crowd almost blocks the broad sidewalk. Most pedestrian squeeze through quietly, but some make a scene. One young woman starts singing “Walking in a Winter Wonder Land” half a block away and keeps it up at the top of her voice as she walks past with an exaggerated jauntiness. Another young woman speeds up as she reaches the crowd, grating loudly “Just get out of the way”.

Two very young women—college age—pause to listen for a moment. I see the placards they are carrying. One says “Roe v. Wade saves lives”. The other says “A blob of cells vs. a woman’s life. That’s a choice?”
