June 7th, 2008, marks the 43rd anniversary of Griswold v. Connecticut, a landmark decision in which the Supreme Court ruled that access to birth control is protected under the privacy clause of the Constitution.
Unfortunately, the American Life League perceives this decision as the catalyst for “the culture of death that we live in today.” They have organized “Protest the Pill Day ‘08”; the rallying cry of which is the false declaration that “The Pill Kills.” Their website urges anti-choicers to “gather with your friends for peaceful protests in front of facilities that distribute birth control products.”
Fortunately, Planned Parenthood is organizing counter protests. The Women’s Information Network, or WIN, is holding a local counter protest.
When: Saturday, June 7 from noon until 2 PM
Where: The Planned Parenthood Clinic at 16th and L, NW - site of a planned
Pill Kills protest
