CHICAGO, IL (8-26-18)-
On August 26th, a sizeable collection of leftist, pro-abortion organizations put together a string of protests against Brett Kavanaugh across the country. We expected the usual suspects (Planned Parenthood, NARAL, Feminist Majority, etc.) but looking at the full list comes with a bunch of face palms. American Federation of Teachers? Equal Rights Advocates? Human Rights Campaign? MomsRising? We say this almost every day, but how is irony so lost on the pro-abortion movement? And don’t even get us started on partners like Center for Biological Diversity, NAACP, and Color of Change. Someone should probably tell them that abortion has caused the black reproduction rate to drop below “replacement level.”
ANYWAYS – as usual, both the rally’s participants and their mantras were old and incorrect. SFLA’s Upper Midwest coordinator David Cordaro led the Pro-Life Gen charge and documented his day here. Chicago’s Pro-Life Gen might just take the prize for the most hyped contingent (we think everyone needs their own drumline) and it was amazing to see the disparity between our happy, young pro-lifers versus their angry, crotchety, “flip us off” geezers. Oh, don’t get us wrong, we saw a few young pro-abortion people there. They felt threatened enough to follow us around, chanting, “A baby’s not a baby ‘til it comes out – that’s what birthdays are all about!” And however can we argue with that logic?
Countering this protest in Chicago was a massive success. The myriad of media outlets present at the event got to see the stark differences between the pro-life and pro-abortion sides. We hope and pray that some hearts got softened that day. As fun as it is to crash pro-abortion events, one of our main goals of pro-life work is to dialogue with the other side in order to change hearts and minds. These gentlemen, unfortunately, wouldn’t play along, opting instead to write us off as stupid and misinformed youth.
They have no idea how wrong they are about us. This group of happy, excited young people is just one fragment of an entire movement across the country. As for misinformed? I don’t think so. Today’s youth know more about what goes on inside the womb than any generation that came before us. We respect what science reports, we know what’s in there, and we know what’s at stake. As the Kavanaugh hearings approach, we will continue to do all we can to ensure his confirmation.
