My favorite photo

I love that got this shot. Right here is when CEO and President Steve Trombley said:

"But we know that the services we provide at this center will do more in one day to prevent abortions than our opponents will do in a lifetime of protesting."

That is the gosh darn truth.

True -- criminalizing abortion will not do much to end it.

But I think it's important not to downplay the power of grassroots, community organizing and protest -- to rollback, or defend abortion rights. Unfortunately, the conversative movement's organized demonstrating has done a lot to affect the political debate on women's healthcare. Their coercive brainwashing is not what we want to emulate, but there is something our side can learn from their high level of organization, including direct action tactics.

No struggle, no progress.
