PRESS RELEASE


November 3, 1999

People for Life will demonstrate on Thursday, November 4, at Noontime in opposition to the opening of an ABORTION FACILITY in Erie. The location of the demonstration will be 1611 Peach St., Erie, where Dr. Steven Chase Brigham, an abortionist and the operator of numerous abortion facilities, has been acquiring office space.

People for Life President Tim Broderick on Wednesday noted that backing for these public demonstrations is coming from some unlikely places. "During our demonstrations last weekend, we were joined by at least one occupant of the building which is slated to house the abortion mill. We've even received encouragement from a number of people who consider themselves 'pro-choice.'

"One woman who described herself as 'pro-choice' called our office to tell us not to stop what we are doing. The caller told us that she had had an abortion and that the abortion has had a devastating impact on her life. She said that if, because of our efforts, just one woman changes her mind about actually exercising her choice to have an abortion, our efforts will have been worth it.

"Other pro-choicers who believe that abortion should be a matter between 'a woman and her doctor and her god' are nevertheless sickened by the idea of an impersonal assembly line style abortion mill selling quick fixes to women facing a very complex set of problems and choices.

"Some of our neighbors might disagree with us on the need for legal protection for unborn children, but we obviously share some common ground when it comes to just saying NO to another one of Dr. Brigham's assembly line abortion mills." More demonstrations at various times and places are anticipated.
