McQuade noted that the number of yearly abortions has been down since the 1990s and that a new movement is trying to further reduce abortions through education, better health care and counseling for pregnant women and new parents.
The movement is led by progressive abortion opponents, including the groups Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good and Catholics United, who handed out fliers at yesterday's march and hosted speakers. A sign posted near the Supreme Court building -- the final destination of the march -- read: "Reduce Abortions, Support Sex Education."
I took a picture of that sign. It wasn't a sign used by someone in the March. It was the lettering posted in the permanent sign in front of United Methodist headquarters. The United Methodist church can hardly be described as an "abortion opponent" considering its a member of the Religious Coalition of Reproductive Choice.
