Planned Parenthood Honk and Wave

I participated in the Women’s Health Rights Honk and Wave organized by Planned Parenthood on Wednesday.  This was in protest to the Supreme Court’s recent decision to uphold the Federal Ban on abortion.  Mind you, six white guys have decided what the fate of women’s health issues are in this country.  Women, we have been raped.

Here are some photos:

Planned Parenthood Protests Supreme Court Ban of Partial Birth Abortions

April 25th, 2007 @ 3:42pm
(KSL News) Demonstrations across the country and here in Utah showed their opposition today to a Supreme Court abortion ruling.

In Salt Lake, women’s rights advocates held signs and rallied against the court’s decision to ban partial birth abortions.


It was just one protest of many several states organized by Planned Parenthood.

Demonstrators say the abortion ruling opens the door to lawmakers to make medical decisions for American women.

The recent ruling is the court’s first decision to uphold a federal ban since Roe versus Wade.
