    But I was talking about the Television news media that millions watch on a daily basis. The under-knowledged in the US and abroad rely on soundbytes to form their opinions. If the news goes unreported, the word never gets out.

    When a nation performs over a million abortions a year, I deem that newsworthy. When 500,000 US citizens march on the capital, I deem that front page and a lead news story.
    A Google news search now returns 786 articles? The issue was widely covered obviously this is not enough for some.

    But how in the name of Jesus you make out abortion has anything to do with being "sectarian" or "partitionist" is beyond me...

    Do you know what those terms mean ?

    I hope I don't rattle your cave unduly when I tell you this, but abortion is sectarian and partitionist because we only target unborn babies and not the born ones with it.

    If it was wrong to target innocent catholics solely on a sectarian basis, then surely it is wrong to target someone solely based on their age.

    SF are hypocrites if they claim to be against sectarianism and yet support the ultimate in sectarian partition; the division of a baby from its life.

    Get up that garden ya traitor.

    Foot-long subs vs. March For Life (update)

    The Associated Press has a Twitter feed with nearly 1.6 million followers. Those followers received two tweets about a gun control rally and march in Washington, D.C. this weekend.

    “Gun control march in Washington to feature Newtown residents, pastors, parents and survivors of gun violence,” read one.

    “PHOTOS: Thousands march for gun control on National Mall in Washington,” read another.

    Considering the relatively small size of the march (Some said “nearly 1,000.” Others, as noted above, said “thousands.”), it makes one wonder how many links to stories and photo collections were sent out for the massive 40th anniversary March for Life.

    The answer, of course, would be zero. Really, the AP Twitter feed never found it worthwhile, in its steady stream of tweets, to even mention the March for Life, much less link to a photo gallery of it

    Nice round number, th' old half a million, in Washington. Mind you well over double that number marched in the UK against an attack on Iraq and that never bothered Tony Blair or his Attorney General.

    I'd say the best thing that half a million could do is vow never to have an abortion if they object to it.

    I hadn't heard that the US was planning on making abortion compulsory or anything so I suppose that takes care of that.

    You are missing a very obvious point Lamports, that the law itself is brought into disrepute when it sanctions the ending of the most innocent of life, the child in the womb.

    Laws if they are to mean anything, must take into account the dignity of the human person; hence criminal sanctions against waterboarding in Guantanamo for example. We make small children sit in specially strapped in seats in our cars for example. We have speed limits on roads which pass through residential areas for another example.

    It is hypocritical to take such obvious care of babies and children post birth, while simultaneously allowing laws which sanction a premature ending of their lives before we deem them worthy of protection.

    Abortion opponents march in Washington | Fox News

    But God's word will not return void.

    percentage wise its the equivalent of 7000 people marching in ireland, so no wonder the media went meh

    The abortion industry in the US also targets the poor and those of minority status. They target blacks and Hispanics to a large degree. Any other industry that targets the poor and minority for malevolent intentions is deemed racist then attacked and ultimately ostracized.
