Rallies against the So-Called “War on Women” to be Held Saturday

Posted by John Jansen (April 26, 2012 at 7:46 am)

NOW: Stop the War on Unborn WomenThis Saturday, April 28, a coalition of pro-choice groups are sponsoring “Unite Against the War on Women” rallies at several cities across the country.

Among the sponsors are the National Organization for Women, Americans United for the Separation of Church and State, and a group called “Rock the Slut Vote” — not to be confused with a group called “This Slut Votes,” which is also a sponsor.

The “About Us” page informs us that the idea for the rallies originated February 19 — a mere nine days after the Pro-Life Action League and Citizens for a Pro-Life Society announced that the Nationwide Rally for Religious Freedom in opposition to the HHS Mandate would be held on March 23.


Who’s Telling Who to “Teach Science”?

The website is nothing if not a panoply of the bizarre.

If you go to the homepage, the first thing you’ll notice is a series of rotating pictures, one of which is:

Oh, the irony!

This from the side of the abortion debate that repeatedly refuses to acknowledge the scientific fact that the life of a new human being begins at conception.

“Pro-Choice” Onesies for Babies and Other Wares

It gets even stranger at their online store, where you can buy this onesie for your baby:

Why do I get the feeling these aren’t going to be big sellers?

Also for sale are T-shirts with these words:

Crassly mocking the Bible like this really makes’s claim to “strongly [support] diversity and [welcome] men and women of all ages without regard to their … religious or spiritual beliefs” ring a bit hollow — as if anyone ever believed that to begin with.

They also have T-shirts for men, like this one:

Yes, because, you know, nothing says, “Take me seriously!” like Comic Sans typeface.

Bring Your Own “Cardboard Uterus”

Because the so-called “Unite Women” campaign has no clear message or purpose, it will be interesting to see what transpires at this Saturday’s various rallies.

At the rally in Chicago — originally scheduled to be held downtown at Daley Plaza, then moved to Washington Park, and now, for the moment at least, is scheduled to be held in Lincoln Park — one thing to be on the lookout for is cardboard uteruses.

Yes, really:

You can’t make this stuff up!

    “real men are for women, not against them”. Huh. Real men don’t let women kill their children. Real men take responsibility!

    embryos and fetuses are not babies.

    Making abortion illegal does not make it go away – just makes women die:

    This observation is squarely directed to the print and electronic media in Indianapolis. On March 23rd, there were over 600 people on the south lawn of the Statehouse standing in a downpour of rain for two hours taking a stand for human life that begins at conception. Major speakers presented undisputed facts about how our most vulnerable humans – 4,000 persons each and every day in the United States – are massacred before birth. Not even one mention of this event could be found in our local media. In fact, similar rallys took place in over 150 cities throughout the U.S. However, today’s Indianapolis Star devotes one half page of photos to a few dozen impassioned people devoted to continuing this carnage of abortion under the false banner of “Women’s Reproductive Rights”. So, what has happened to responsible media coverage and the pursuit of truth?

    I’m so tired of the BS. Pro-choice people should finish the sentence when they refer to abortion as being a womens right. How about “Womens right to kill babies?”

    Actually- we don’t know who is behind this forgery of the recently unearthed Book of Fallopians, but the Scholars of the Council on Ovarian Sects, of the FLAW Insitute are in possession of the original verses of Fallopians 4:28 thru 5:1, which read “Rejected will you be O Men, to attend to thy needs by thyself, Alone or in the shower and preferably while we are out- and PLEASE don’t tell us about it either for You have allowed Elephants to occupy us and hence, we have no room for you!” As you can see it wouldn’t fit well on a T-shirt, but is quite different from the sentiment you reported above. While the council is still piecing together the rediscovered text, it is clear to us that Fallopians have been mocked by the bible and it’s followers for roughly 2000 years and would like that to stop. This verser is closer to the sentiment of the pick T-shirt, though. like the other it will not fit: ‎”We don’t care what the naysayers say- OUR Bodies are OURS! What you do with your body is up to you. This body is the only body I have- it shares MY NAME. Who are they to tell us WE can’t have a voice, that WE can’t speak publicly. Listen- if you don’t love ME and you don’t like what I do with MY body- GET OUT! My body is sacred to ME.” Fallopians 3:31 In peace and wishes for illuminated moon cycles, Andi, VEA And Member of the Council of FLAW

    Government control over women’s bodies! Woo! I love the control we conservatives want to have over other people. You know what I hate though? Free medical care to people who can’t afford it. We should really just let them die. Amirite? Mitt 2012!
