Friday, January 27—Determined protesters went up in the face of thousands of reactionary anti-abortion fanatics who were doing their annual march in DC, and who were newly pumped up because of the ascension of the Trump-Pence regime to power. They call their event the “March for Life”—but it is really a March for Forced Motherhood and March for Extreme Patriarchy. Vice President Mike Pence addressed the crowd—the first time a high-level White House official spoke in person at this anti-abortion march (in previous years Republican presidents have spoken by video or audio). Against this Christian fascist mob, protesters from NOW, Stop Patriarchy, Refuse Fascism, Georgetown University, and others called for defense of safe and legal abortions and resistance against the assaults on the rights and the very lives of women.
