Lone pro-abort picketer makes news


On any given day pro-lifers pray and picket in front of tens to hundreds of the 750 free-standing abortion clinics remaining in the US.

We don’t necessarily make the news any more because we’re fixtures, commonplace.

But, hey, spot even one pro-abort protester and call out the press. From the Sun Chronicle, September 8:

Abortion foes have picketed Four Women Clinic [in Attleboro, MA]… for years, but a pro-choice supporter aims to provide the opposite view.

City resident Marion Brousseau, who ardently supports a woman’s right to have an abortion, started her advocacy Tuesday with a 3-hour stint at mid-day, standing alone and holding her pro-choice sign.

No anti-abortion demonstrators were present, although they usually are on Tuesdays.

The 61-year-old retiree said it’s time for pro-choicers to make a stand or they could lose what they have gained.

“We’ve been too complacent and laid back,” she said. “I don’t want us ever to lose this right. We’ve been taking it for granted.”…

Abortion foes have demonstrated peacefully on public property, although they have at times run afoul of some city ordinances or upset neighbors who objected to graphic pictures of aborted fetuses.

Brousseau said she plans to show up when abortion foes show up, typically on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

While she was alone Tuesday, she’s hoping a friend will join her Thursday, and that more will eventually come from a church to which she belongs.

“I’m hoping to get a group to go out there in the next few weeks,” said Brousseau, who described herself as a “Christian.”

“I think some people think people who are pro-choice are atheists,” she said. Brousseau said passers-by gave her support.

“It didn’t get any negative comments, she said.

Love Brousseau’s signage choice of words, “Long Live Women’s Freedom of Choice Abortion.” She must not know her message is ridiculously contradictory and impossible. Since over half of abortees are female, attrition alone dictates abortion can’t “live long.”

And “live,” Marion? Do you not realize the irony in hoping a procedure that kills will “live”?

  1. Let us translate from abortionist doublespeak (the language used by opponents of unborn human rights and the media).  Here is how part of the article would read:
     
    Supporters of unborn human rights have picketed Four Women “Clinic” (Child Killing Facility) for years, but a “pro-choice” “supporter” aims to “provide” the “opposite” “view”.    (Abortionists cannot be called “supporters” of anything since their “position” is contradictory and logically impossible.  It not only violates natural law, but is at war with itself, since they are asserting a “right” to kill human beings, which destroys the foundation  of all human rights and thereby destroys itself.  Therefore they cannot “provide” an “opposing” “view”.
    City resident Marion Brousseau, who “ardently” “supports” a woman’s “right” to commit an abortion crime, an act of prenatal homicide, started her “advocacy” Tuesday of her paradoxical and contradictory “position”… standing alone and holding her “pro-choice” sign.
    The 61 year old retiree who survived the unborn stage through which she lived in 1948-49 (when unborn children like her were protected) and who is alive today only because she was not killed by the crime which she now “supports” said it’s time for “pro-choicers” (opponents of unborn human rights, actually all human rights) to make a “stand” or they could “lose” what they have “gained”.  (Obviously, you cannot “gain” something which is a contradiction, an illusion, a “right” which by its “nature” cannot exist.)
     
    “I don’t  want us ever to “lose” this “right”.  (A “right” to what?  to commit the crime of prenatal homicide, to abortionist drivel and doublespeak, to contradiction, to violate the laws of logic, to what?)
     
    While she was alone Tuesday, she’s hoping a friend will join her Thursday, and that more will eventually come from a “church” (!!!) to which she “belongs”.
     
    …Brousseau… described herself as a “Christian” (!!!).
     
    (“Church”? “Christian”?  What true Christian church can support or even “support” a crime against human beings made in the image of God which has been condemned by the Church (and all true churches) as a “grave moral evil” and an “unspeakable crime” for 2,000 years?
     
    (In this great struggle of ours, we must face the fact that we are dealing with a completely irrational opponent.)

  2. I think another irony is she inadvertantly highlighted the FACT that being pro-“choice” IS being pro-abortion.  Her sign states, “Long Live Women’s Freedom of Choice Abortion.”   She equates “choice” with “abortion”.  The CHOICE she wants to “live” is the “freedom” to get an abortion.  Her own words in her interview reflect her desire to maintain the right to ABORTION.  Abortion supporters balk at being called pro-abortion, but in reality…the choice isn’t Coke vs. Pepsi or Chocolate vs. Vanilla.  It is LIFE vs. ABORTION.  It is live baby vs, dead baby…every abortion.  Every time.  Abortion IS the “choice” they fight for, picket for, shout for, lobby for, donate money to support, etc.  But I guess it is a little silly to expect people who support the killing of helpless, innocent unborn human life to be honest.

  3. Does a newspaper reporting about a lone pro-abort protester suggest that such a sight is a rare anomaly? ;) Proaborts on the Internet have barks bigger than their bites, I suspect. Only a fraction of them are willing to actually show their faces in public! Interesting, from a psychological point of view.

  4. This is an astonishingly fair article, but I think my favorite part is this one:
     
    “I’m hoping to get a group to go out there in the next few weeks,” said Brousseau, who described herself as a “Christian.”
     
    Maybe I’m just being overly grammar-picky here, but I think those are sarcastic quotes, there.  They’re not grammatically necessary.  In fact, grammatically, they’re wrong.  To need quotes there, the sentence should read “…who described herself as ‘Christian.'”  When you say “a Christian,” the quotes aren’t required, which too me suggests sarcasm.  It could be that this is an editing mistake.  Or it could be that the writer or editor finds her claim of Christianity a bit unbelievable, and is very stealthily mocking her.
     
    I hope it’s the second. :)

  5. Is it just me or did anyone else notice that she chose colors that are typically used for baby’s rooms or baby showers? I find that rather disturbing.

    Also, “long live” — so it’s okay for the choice to have an abortion to “live” but not pre-born babies?

  6. It is probably “FOR Women”, not “FOUR Women”.
     
    Well actually it is not “for women”, but rather ” ‘for’ women”, since it is not “for” women but “against” them, since the place obviously kills women (and men).  You get my drift.

  7. Joe:  They spell it “Four Women” on their website and even have four pictures of women.  Which strikes me as funny because if they wanted it to be ‘for’ women, why not just call it “For Women”?  Their name as it is suggests either they only accept four victims, I mean ‘patients’ at a time.  Or else, that it’s run by four women:  in which case, what happens if one of them gets tired of being a murderer?  Will they change the name to “Three Women and a Stupid Lying Traitor”?

    It’s hard to read about abortion and not feel very sad about it.  Pointing out stupid clinic names helps relieve some of the tension.  Like when you see one calling itself “A Woman’s Choice”, and you see a woman dragging a pregnant girl up the sidewalk to be surgically raped.

  8. I protest at this clinic.  She was there on thursday.  I didn’t interact with her.  This woman has virulently heckled prolifers several times over the past year or so.  Quite different from how we treated her on thursday. 

    And she did get negative comments for passers-by.  I was witness to one. 

  9. The name of the clinic is Four Women’s.  They got cited by the state for health and safety violations early in 2010.  I have the p/w documenting their code violations, which include not properly disposing of “medical waste”, known to us as babies.

  10. Mother in Texas, I thought the same thing! I thought “What a pretty sign with ugly words. The colors remind me of baby-themed wrapping paper.”
     
    Carrie…your posts made my skin crawl. i hope this clinic is shut down very very soon!

  11. Why does she want to keep abortion “alive” anyway? At 61 she’s a little too old to think about having an abortion, so what affect does it have on her, PERSONALLY? I know, she probably had an abortion (or abortionS) in the past, but wanting OTHER women to still have the “right” to kill their own children…. God Forgive this delusional woman.

  12. Pamela,

    Yeah, I figured at 61 she probably passed up menopause already, but she probably means for other women.

    May God have mercy on us all.

  13. I think it’s amusing how prolifers want to be heard and use freedom of speech as an excuse to shove ridiculous “facts” down peoples throats, but when a prochoicer speaks her opinion it’s a gag fest. Why don’t you all mind your own business and let people make their own decisions. I’m getting an abortion and I can’t WAIT. I have no reason..just don’t want a kid right now, so while I’m in there getting my olive sized “baby” vacuumed out, you can all stand and protest since none of you have lives

  14. I think it’s amusing how prolifers want to be heard and use freedom of speech as an excuse to shove ridiculous “facts” down peoples throats, but when a prochoicer speaks her opinion it’s a gag fest.

    I don’t see anyone here questioning her right to freedom of speech.  I see people questioning the newsworthiness of the story, her dedication to her protest, and her lack of civility when engaging pro-lifers.  This is quite different from saying that pro-choicers shouldn’t be heard.

    Why don’t you all mind your own business and let people make their own decisions.

    I support letting people make their own decisions on many things.  A woman should have a right to choose her career, her school, her religion, her vehicle, and her husband, among other things.  The choice that we’re against is the choice to kill innocent human beings because they’re in the way and can’t defend themselves.

    I’m getting an abortion and I can’t WAIT. I have no reason..just don’t want a kid right now, so while I’m in there getting my olive sized “baby” vacuumed out
    I’m sorry to hear that.  I sincerely hope you reconsider.  You already do have a child, not a mere object the size of an olive:

    Giving birth and raising a child isn’t easy, but abortion isn’t just a simple procedure that undoes a pregnancy.  Many women, including those who just “couldn’t wait” to have an abortion, regret it (even many years later):

    It’s also not without its risks.  5-10% of the time, fetal remains and/or pregnancy tissue are left inside the uterus.  Particularly if you have never carried to term before, abortion can increase your risk of breast cancer.  It’s also linked to subsequent preterm birth (which can be very harmful or even fatal to children that you want to have).  Some studies link abortion to depression and other mental health issues.

    Abortion isn’t your only choice.  There is support available to help you manage the difficulties you expect with parenting, or with placing the child for adoption:

    Also, how can you assume that a bunch of people you’ve never met don’t “have lives”?
