And Speaking of Overblown Rhetoric

By Phoebe Connelly
I received this yesterday:

Project 33: A New Generation Opposes Abortion

Just your average press release announcing a march to protest the anniversary of Roe v. Wade. Make sure you read it to the end:
"45 million members of my generation are gone, not because of suicide or gun violence, but because of abortion," said Andrew Nemy, Teens for Life President.  And Andrew is not afraid to point a finger of blame.  "If there aren't enough of us spreading this message, its because you killed them."
