Sarah Weddington wrote about the people she saw at The March for Women’s Lives, a pro-abortion march in Washington DC:
“I remember various images from that day… A man in a big cowboy hat carrying a sign that read: “Cowboys for Choice”; a number of older women identifying themselves as “Menopausal Women Nostalgic for Choice,” and younger ones calling themselves “NY Yankee Fans for Choice.” I was buoyed up by the pageantry of young people holding up placards… “Stand UP for Choice,” and “We Will Not Go Back.” Children wore pins that said “I’m a Choice,” and families carried placards announcing: “This Family Is Pro-Choice.”
Parents were advertising that they “chose” to let their children live, and they were marching for the right to be able to have chosen to kill them. What message does this send to children?
