Hello all as some of you may know my name is Ross and I'm from St. Louis, MO.
I recently went with my girlfriend to Planned Parenthood to get her Depo (birth control) shot. I was talking to one of the guards and he was telling about the religious picketers. He told me how they all stand in front of Planned Parenthood with their bull horns calling the women sluts and sinners (etc.). My girlfriends friend went a few days afterwards and the picketers were right there screaming. They even made her cry with the things they were saying.
Well I believe in pro-choice. I don't want the woman I concieve a child with to have an abortion but I do believe in the womans right to choose. Although I do believe that I think they need to make a law so the father also has some say so.
I plan on picketing the picketers in about a month. I'll probably go at it alone in my lawn chair with my signs. I'm thinking of making a sign that says:
"Religious fundamentalism has killed more then anything else, should we ban it?"
Pro-choice signs and the like.
I was wondering a few things:
1. Would anyone in the area like to join me?
2. What would be some good signs?
3. What do you think about me picketing these people?
Please do not try to bring this thread off topic by arguing if abortion should be legal or not. This thread is not to argue that and if you want to start your own thread.
Originally posted by dk2 Religious Fundamentalism killed everyone on 9/11. It killed people during the crusades. It killed people during Vietnam. Must I go on?
Yes but you are talking about abortion. NOT war. Of course, be correct: Islamic Fundamentalism was behind 9/11, etc. Don't group all the religions together to make a point about abortion. Be smart about your campaign.
