Rock for Life Counter-Protest Proves NOW is Merely a Relic of the Past

Apr 18, 2001, 01:00 ET from Rock for Life

    WASHINGTON, April 18 /PRNewswire/ -- "The truth is, there really is no NOW
 now," said Tina Whittington of American Life League's youth outreach program,
 in advance of a major pro-life counter-protest in Washington, DC.
     "After years of being led by phony feminists, this once groundbreaking
 organization is all but dead and buried, suffocating beneath the weight of its
 hate-based gender politics. And among American women, the most typical
 response to NOW's demise is 'good riddance,'" said Whittington.
     While pro-abortion feminists are canceling permits for their event this
 Sunday, Rock For Life (a division of American Life League's youth outreach
 program) has had to obtain additional permits to accommodate the large number
 of young Americans who will participate in a counter-protest.
     The National Organization for Women has chosen this Sunday, April 22, to
 launch an event it hypes as "An Emergency Action to Save Women's Lives" and
 "Keep Abortion Legal." Rock For Life will counter-protest with pro-life
 evangelism on Sunday at 10:30 a.m. on the north sidewalk of Constitution Ave.
 between New Jersey Ave. and 1st St. NW in Washington, DC.
     In addition to the counter-protest, Tina Whittington will join members of
 Rock For Life, the Capitol Research Center, the Pro-Life Action League, Youth
 for Life, the Christian Defense Coalition, Concerned Women for America and
 many others at a press conference this Thursday at 1 p.m. at the National
 Press Club.
     For more information about the pro-life protest, contact Erik Whittington
 of Rock For Life at 540-649-4171 or ewhittington@all.org.
 
     Rock for Life is a division of American Life League, the nation's largest
 pro-life educational organization with more than 300,000 supporters.
