If you were to wage a one-person pro-choice demonstration
how would you go about doing so?

Operation Rescue has been very active at my school, and I want to stage a counter-demonstration.

Any suggestions? :shrug:

2. Perform public abortions behind a bullet-proof glass shield
One, after another, after another.


Yeah, it wouldn't change minds, but it sure would get a lot of people up in a tizzy

3. I was thinking about handing out coat hangers
Abortions should NEVER be done in public, with the assistance of a doctor.

They should be DIY jobs.

4. I was wondering about the same thing. There's one of those fake
women's clinics in my mom's neighborhood (where I'm staying) and it just calls out for a something. :)

9. Somehow, the idea of being torn to shreds by pro-lifers
sounds like a fine martyrdom. :)

8. How brave are you?
Get some small guague surgical tubing from the local hardware store, some tomato bisque soup, and maybe throw in a few semi-agglutinated blackberries.

Wear a skirt.

Be dramatic.

Use your immagination.

10. Advocate for mandatory organ donation
Of course, you'll need a more inflammatory name, like "forced government organ seizures".

After all, you must point out, if the government can exert juristiction into a woman's body, why stop at the womb?

Perhaps a sign that says "Pro-Life, Pro-Forced Organ Donation!"?

13. That sounds like satire
Redding, California is a satire-free zone. :(

14. Wear a full-on choir robe ensemble
Get some friends to join if you can, dress the part as the hallelujah chorus representatives of "Coat Hangers for Jesus".

20. thank them for their total support for totally socialized medicene
becasue if the child is born with severe handicaps,
they DO want to do their fair share in paying for it.
