…because not only does this:
A massive anti-abortion protest shut down downtown San Francisco. Tens of thousands of people were making their voices heard Saturday. NBC Bay Area’s Christie Smith reports from San Francisco
delight me due to the massive crowds but I’m absolutely drooling over these two things that must turn the stomach of every leftist journalist who reported on it first this: (emphasis mine)
The Vatican ambassador to the U.S., Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano, told the multigenerational, multi-ethnic and heavily Catholic crowd that he was encouraged by the House vote on Thursday’s anniversary of Roe v. Wade to permanently forbid federal funds for most abortions. :
Yes, the pro-life crowd was full of people of all ages and races and full of strong catholics totally unlike the congresswoman who represents the district they marched through.
And if that doesn’t upset the left and make me mile this bit of comparative info really rings my chimes: (emphasis mine again)
The celebration also drew about 100 abortion legal rights activists. Organized by Halt Patriarchy, they gathered at Powell and Marketplace streets at one p.m., waving indicators and shouting as the anti-abortion contingent designed their way from Civic Center Plaza to the Justin Herman Plaza on the Embarcadero.
Yes you read that right 50,000 pro-life protesters against 100 pro abortion protesters in freaking SAN FRANCISCO!

and even these protesters were confronted by an equal number of pro-life activists completely apart from the main group displaying graphic examples of just what Abortion is:
About one hundred pro-life activists skipped the 12:thirty p.m. Civic Heart rally and instead squared off from the pro-option protesters at the Powell and Industry place, the sides divided 10 ft apart at the rear of steel barriers and law enforcement officers.
On the pro-daily life side, a several individuals had disregarded the advice about graphic images, which include 1 of a fetus foot with the caption, “Murdered! I was not just a blob of tissue.”
I confess I should be a lot more pleased at the strength of the pro-life marchers than the weakness and the frustration of the pro-abortion forces.
I’ll have to mention it next time I go to confession and include them in the Perpetual Twitter Novena.
