Anti-Choicers Plan Annual Protest

You can help.

40 Days of Life - Anti Choice Campaign set for September 23 - November 1
The 40 Days for Life Campaign takes place every year. Anti-choice protesters organize outside women's health clinics for silent protests, prayer vigils, etc. Take a look. If your local clinic is on there, why not call or send them an e-mail to give them a heads-up. They may not know they're being targeted. You could also show up to counterprotest, sign up at the clinic to be trained as a volunteer patient escort, or if you want to be really sneaky, you could sign up for blocks of protest time on the anti-choice group's site so they think they will have people there when they won't.

IL folks, there are a lot of targets in the Chicago area.


I'm in Indianapolis, and they're targeting Georgetown Rd's Planned Parenthood. I'm going to give them a call tomorrow to make sure they know what's up, but if any of you can actually go give them a hand... I'm sure it will mean the world to them to know that the community supports them.

Thank you for the heads up on this. I live in Southern Indiana and will see about contacting the PP in Bloomington that's on their list and maybe even contact the women's studies dept. at IU to see if they want to organize something to counter. I was escort for clients at PP during a pro-life rally once years ago. Sounds like I may do so once again. Thanks again! -- Lyon

Oh, thank you! That's a very good idea. I may call Butler and tell the crew to send a contingent of progressives over.
