Something up in the Anti-Abortion World?
April 29, 2009 9:36 AM   Subscribe

Yesterday, for no reason known to me, anti-abortion demonstrators were out in force here in the east end of Pittsburgh. Did I miss something? Does April 28 signify something important? Was this happening in other parts of the country or world?

I can't remember the last time I saw anti-abortion protesters -- I was wondering if I missed some major ruling or anniversary.

I am hoping it's not a new Spring thing and/or that they are planning on making a habit of being out on many of the street corners I pass by. I respect their right to express their opinion, it just makes my blood boil.

Obama's 100th day?

It may have been reaction to the confirmation of Kathleen Sebelius as the head of Health and Human Services. She is pro-choice.

Someone on LJ had the exact same question and it seems like it was just one of those days that they pop up.

Is there a Planned Parenthood facility being built in the area? That usually brings 'em out.

I'm pretty sure it was Sebelius's confirmation. Until this whole swine flu thing, the pro-choice issue was the only thing stalling her confirmation.

Unixrat and kimdog probably have the answers. I know the anti-abortion people were really up-in-arms about Sebelius.

Around here, we have a bunch of people rallying about the Obama-speaking-at-Notre-Dame thing. Then again, that's because I'm in South Bend. We've had a plane flying around pulling a photo of a 10 week abortion for the past three days.
