I think this is so important for us all to support the movement for women's rights.
With this cruel DICTATOR Bush in office we have to let it be known that we are not going to sit still and let the Bush Administration walks all over our rights as women. This rally will give us an opportunity to say it loudly, TAKE CARE OF YOUR OWN HOUSE, AND LEAVE OURS HOUSES' ALONE.

An abortion does not make you "un-pregnant", it makes you the mother of a "dead baby".
