I can't remember the last time an anti-choice streetside rally did not include children, usually forced to carry signs with abortion porn pictures.

Usually the children are right on the curb so they would be the first to be hit if any vehicle hits them.

Good grief, people like RA and his racist rabble are dumb as rocks.

Also, Iraqi soldiers threw Kuwaiti babies out of the incubators in 1990. It's a well-known fact.
