Toss in comments about the event itself and the massive media coverage – if you can manage to sift through it all, that is. I understand if you can’t.
Michael went up – he’s had a very busy two days and will be returning later tonight. I’ve not heard from him since this morning when he attempted to call me from the Verizon Center before the Mass for youth – that didn’t go very well, considering the din. I’m sure he’ll be blogging on the experience.
So, blog on your own experiences, what you’ve seen and heard. If you have any links of blogging/twittering marchers, please do.
Sounds like it was a huge turnout. Let’s pray it has an impact on those who participated and those who witnessed.
On the 36th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, we are reminded that this decision not only protects women’s health and reproductive freedom, but stands for a broader principle: that government should not intrude on our most private family matters. I remain committed to protecting a woman’s right to choose. While this is a sensitive and often divisive issue, no matter what our views, we are united in our determination to prevent unintended pregnancies, reduce the need for abortion, and support women and families in the choices they make. To accomplish these goals, we must work to find common ground to expand access to affordable contraception, accurate health information, and preventative services. On this anniversary, we must also recommit ourselves more broadly to ensuring that our daughters have the same rights and opportunities as our sons: the chance to attain a world-class education; to have fulfilling careers in any industry; to be treated fairly and paid equally for their work; and to have no limits on their dreams. That is what I want for women everywhere.”
