Pro-Choice demonstrators make their children wear “I’m a Choice” pins

Pro-Choice lawyer Sarah Weddington, who argued the Roe Vs. Wade case before the Supreme Court, writes about a pro-abortion demonstration she went to. It was called the March for Women’s Lives She recalls:

“I remember various images from that day… A man in a big cowboy hat carrying a sign that read: “Cowboys for Choice”; a number of older women identifying themselves as “Menopausal Women Nostalgic for Choice,” and younger ones calling themselves “NY Yankee Fans for Choice.” I was buoyed up by the pageantry of young people holding up placards… “Stand UP for Choice,” and “We Will Not Go Back.” Children wore pins that said “I’m a Choice,” and families carried placards announcing: “This Family Is Pro-Choice.”

Can you imagine a woman forcing her child to wear a button saying “I’m a choice?” These parents are emphasizing the fact that they could have killed their children. How is that child going to feel growing up, knowing he or she could just as easily have been killed in the womb?
