March for Abortion Rights – Protest March for Life Chicago

Each January, right-wing, anti-choice bigots from around the midwest are bussed in to Chicago for the so-called “March for Life”.
There is nothing “pro-life” about these people – they don’t care about babies once they’re born, they’re pro-gun, pro-war, and pro-Trump. They want to ban contraception and comprehensive sex ed. They don’t care that black women are drastically more likely to die in childbirth than white women. They’re perfectly happy to see funding cut for programs that serve disabled infants, children, and adults. They don’t care that folks across America are suffering from lead poisoning and treatable diseases. They don’t care that folks across America are getting murdered by police. They don’t care that trans folks, people of color, and sex workers are getting murdered every day. They don’t care that folks around the world are being killed by American bombs. For these reasons and more, we call them not “pro-life”, but “pro-lie”.
