Anti-Abortion activism in the Square
19 Aug 2005 08:37 GMT
Around 3:30 i was buying a trimet pass in Pioneer Square when I noticed a bunch of people standing around with red tape over their mouthes with the word "life" written on them. Most had their eyes closed; one was listening to music, all were swaying back and forth. Tape-over-the-mouth is a commonly used tactic by activists when they feel their rights are being trampled on. I wanted to know what was going on, and, if it was a cause I liked, join in.
So I went up to the guy whose red tape said "Spokesperson." He very curtiously told me that they were having a silent prayer meeting asking god to end abortion.
