Gag reflex


To the editor,

I am using this as a forum to send my sincere thanks to the people who are right now standing in the rain, using their umbrellas to block the pictures of dismembered, bloody fetuses that anti-abortionists are displaying to pedestrians and traffic on South Park Street. These photos, though gruesome to behold, remind me of how grateful I am to be in a place where I get to decide what I do with my vagina and uterus. In other places in the world women are killed for that and less.

I'm upset that these anti-abortionists are able to visually assault passers-by in the name of taking away a woman's right. What they are doing is a sneaky, despicable kind of violence and I want them removed from my city streets.
