Flag Day Demonstration

People for Life will conduct another demonstration, on Wednesday, June 14, 2000 - Flag Day, from Noon to 1:00 PM, opposing the opening of an abortion facility in Erie. The demonstration will take place at the Professional Building, 1611 Peach St., Erie, where Dr. Steven Brigham intends to locate his abortion mill.

Flag Day is a very good day for a demonstration of this nature. People for Life's president, Tim Broderick, issued the following statement today:

"Patriotism is at the very heart of opposition to abortion. For 225 years, Americans have proudly - at times defiantly - flown the Stars and Stripes with the firm conviction that ALL PEOPLE ARE CREATED EQUAL. Out of this conviction flow the most lavish freedoms and opportunities ever known in history of the world. Patriotic Americans have long held that one may never injure a fellow human being, because ALL ARE EQUAL.

"Abortion dashes this belief to pieces and with it the way of life that American's have cherished - and fought and died for - since 1776. Abortion, as did slavery, makes a mockery of the very idea of human equality. Under legal abortion might makes right; the weak and defenseless are of no account. Abortion is not only inhuman - it is anti-American. Those who play politics with abortion and those who profit from it are selling out their country's flag and the great humanitarian principles for which it stands."
