Headliners for the Annual Anti-Choice "March For Life"

| | Comments (28) | TrackBacks (0)

Anti-choice protestors from far and wide flooded the streets of Washington, D.C. to participate in the annual anti-choice "March For Life."

Several anti-choice members of Congress spoke at the march this year. Do any of these names ring a bell for you?


Speaker John Boehner (R-OH), among his many accomplishments, masterminded 10 votes on choice in the last Congress! Among them were the "Let Women Die" bill, and an attempt to defund Planned Parenthood.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is infamous for trying to sneak a "personhood" amendment into a flood-insurance bill. Sen. Paul also filed several amendments to a bill that would have given the District of Columbia autonomy of its own budget, including one that would permanently ban the District from using its own funds to pay for abortion care for low-income women.


Rep. Diane Black (R-TN) showed that pushing an anti-choice agenda is her top priority when she reintroduced a bill to defund Planned Parenthood - just two days into the 113th Congress.


Rep. Dan Lipinski (D-IL) co-chairs the Congressional Pro-Life Caucus and recently criticized the Roe v. Wade - the Supreme Court decision that recognized a woman's right to safe, legal abortion care.

And Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ), who also sits on the Congressional Pro-Life Caucus, voted to ban health-insurance coverage for abortion care. He also criticized President Obama for being the "abortion president" on the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade.

All in all, this is a pretty spectacular roundup of the most extreme anti-choice politicians who work every day to block a woman's right to access reproductive-health care.

Let these extreme anti-choicers know that you believe a woman's right to safe, legal, abortion care should be protected.

Show them their bullying tactics won't work by pledging your support for the last abortion provider in Mississippi.
