With the Supreme Court’s decision on buffer zones around women’s health clinics (yes, they do a lot more than just provide abortions), we can be sure the pro-birth crowd will ramp up their rhetoric. They think they have been given carte blanche to protest in whatever fashion they like. And it’s usually pretty obnoxious.
Thanks to SCOTUS, here are some of the things we can expect to see more of:
Westboro Baptist Church doesn’t limit themselves to waving signs about gays. They’ve branched out:
Phoning in threats is popular among those who are too cowardly to show their face:
Surrounding the clinic is a popular tactic:
Wanted posters get the message across:
The entrance is always staked out:
Sidewalks get pretty crowded:
Escorts may want to invest in lots of earplugs:
Patients have to run the gauntlet:
College campuses are popular spots to set up science-free displays:
Anti-choice performance art?:
Then there are the signs…
This priest wants to jail people who believe differently than him. I guess the Reformation isn’t something he studied in history class
This one just makes your brain hurt. Does she realize that Harry Potter and Voldemort are fictitious characters?
Of course they have to throw in an obvious attempt to guilt-trip liberals:
And, play the race card:
I guess he got his wish:
Jesus us doing a facepalm in that photo, but not for the reason they think:
But, at least someone has some sense. This is my favorite:
Yes, we will see all of this and more — and even closer to the clinics, too. If you want to make your own pro-choice signs, The Pro-Choice Public Education Project has some terrific ideas. There are some great quotes here, a few of which would make a good sign. And Pintrest has some excellent slogans as well.
They will be loud. We have to be louder.
