-San Francisco: 40,000+ in West Coast ‘Pro-life’ March

by Dr. D ~ January 23rd, 2012

More than 40,000 joined in eighth annual ‘Walk for Life West Coast’ event in San Francisco, California, on Saturday.

According to the Christian Post:

The crowd gathered at Civic Center Plaza in front of the San Francisco City Hall on Saturday morning for an "Info Fair," which featured music, speakers and activities for kids. The march began in the afternoon. The activists walked down Market Street to Justin Herman Plaza at the Embarcadero, filling the length and breadth of the street.

The pro-life event was held the day after the Occupy San Francisco’s "Day of Action" drew only a few thousand protesters on Friday. According to reports, the unruly ‘occupy’ event ended with Police arresting a 23 protesters while there were no arrests made during the ‘pro-life’ march.

The Saturday date was chosen to protest the 39th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion which was the next day on Sunday.

Response: Guess which event got the most media attention? Yep, the couple of thousand hooligans got all of the attention! The main stream press has been very quiet about the peaceful 40,000 pro-life marchers though it could not be ignored in the Bay area and received considerable coverage from the San Francisco press.

However, there were a couple of hundred pro-abortion ‘counter protesters’ who ended up getting nearly equal coverage to the thousands of pro-lifers.

You are probably hearing about it for the first time here unless you were in San Francisco that day or read about it in the CP Internet report. There is also an East Coast pro-life march scheduled today in Washington DC. It will be interesting to gage the press response to the over 100,000 expected in that event.             *Top
