Mothers Against Bush March Across Brooklyn Bridge

The Brooklyn Bridge march, organized by the abortion rights group Planned Parenthood, attracted thousands of people on a hot, humid day. They crossed the bridge in a line 10 people wide and about a half-mile long.

"I demand and cherish that right," said Sara Breman, 22, a student from Austin, Texas. "Under Bush that right is being threatened through their way of teaching sexual education by teaching abstinence."

Uhhh.........'cause abstinence is bad, mmmmmkaaaay??

From World Net Daily...

The (Elliot) Institute reports: "Studies within the first few weeks after the abortion have found that between 40 and 60 percent of women questioned report negative reactions. Within 8 weeks after their abortions, 55 percent expressed guilt, 44 percent complained of nervous disorders, 36 percent had experienced sleep disturbances, 31 percent had regrets about their decision, and 11 percent had been prescribed psychotropic medicine by their family doctor."

Among the many physical consequences of an abortion, the Elliot Institute has documented "minor infections, bleeding, fevers, chronic abdominal pain, gastro-intestinal disturbances and vomiting." Also listed are "excessive bleeding, embolism, ripping or perforation of the uterus, anesthesia complications, convulsions, hemorrhage, cervical injury and endotoxic shock." How interesting that these terms will not be in circulation at the "March for Women's Lives."

Instead, curious women will hear the results of studies as old as 1989, like this one from "Research studies indicate that emotional responses to legally induced abortion are largely positive." Other studies date back to 1988, 1985 and 1984. It is not at all surprising that this organization needs to rely on vague, 20-year-old evidence as filler for their "Fact Sheet." The more facts about abortion that come out, the harder it gets to defend abortion and find favorable facts about it.
