|The scene on my approach to the rally. There were certainly a lot of women in this alleged “War on Women”|
I was impressed by the turnout, given how little I’d heard this advertised. I was running late, and had to catch a cab to make it to the Rally, and the cab driver hadn’t heard anything about it. He was thrilled when he learned about it (he was Ethiopian Orthodox, and gets the problems with forcing us to subsidize contraception), so he, like several other drivers, honked their support. This video helps capture both the crowd size, and the honking supporters:
|In the center of this picture is a very-pregnant woman carrying a sign that reads,
“Fertility is Not a Disease.” Amen!
|This was the scene to my immediate right: an older woman,
a young woman on her smartphone (like me), and a monk.
|Part of the Rally was shaded, part was not. The weather has been incredibly hot for March.
Also, the Rally started with everyone getting down on their knees in prayer… which was beautiful.
|Gotta love the Dominicans. There were a lot of people in clerics, which was great to see!|
|I eventually moved to the shade.|
|There were a lot of kids present, which was great.|
|Another shot capturing the crowd.|
A snippet of Lila Rose’s speech:
|The woman in the center of this picture brought her four well-behaved kids with her.
The future goes to the fertile.
