As usual, the Life Chain brought out some visceral reactions, with lots of middle fingers and shouted F bombs. This can be ignored, as people screaming obscenities and insults are not interested in an intellectually coherent discussion of the issues surrounding abortion. The same can be said of Reddit trolls. One argument that should be addressed is the claim in the Herald-Times that pro-lifers are “unsympathetic.”
But first things first: No one was “marching down Third Street.” Street captains with bags of signs and orange vests went to their designated street corners to hold signs and provide signs for anyone who wanted to join them at our respective locations. The Life Chain has been held for years, and the format has always been the same. That factual error should have been edited before publication.
