Texas freethinkers may already know that the evangelical group Houston Unite for Life is marching on the new Planned Parenthood clinic there this Saturday. But fewer know about the pro-choice counterdemo that’s responding to it at the Catholic Charismatic Center, where the antiabortion march is to begin. So I wanted to announce that here. If it’s anything like the pro-choice demos near me, there’ll be plenty of sacrilegious singing for all! 

The counterdemo’s Facebook page is http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=132172940167249 and here are the key details:

Counter-Protest @ “Houston Unite for Life” Event!
Saturday, October 23 ยท 9:30am - 1:30pm
Catholic Charismatic Center
1949 Cullen Street
Houston, TX
An ANTI-CHOICE group called “Unite for Life” is planning a little get together that they claim will be the “biggest gathering of pro-lifers in Houston ever.”

Invite your friends! Bring your posters! Bring your voices!!! Let’s show these fundamentalists that freedom of reproductive choice is HERE TO STAY!

For more information about THEIR event and their organization visit: http://uniteforlife2010.org/
A few of us will meet up at UH (in the parking lot of the stadium on Holman and Scott) at 9:00am and carpool, if you would like to join, or volunteer your car for carpooling, please comment here or email .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) or contact Amanda on facebook!

The Unite for Life group is planning to march to Planned Parenthood, HOWEVER, Planned Parenthood has asked that we do not protest at their site to avoid extra conflict and/or confusion for their patients. We will be protesting at the Catholic Charismatic Center ONLY, so lets make it big!!
