BARF ActionsThe BARF Zero-Tolerance T-Shirt
Both of us have worn white T-shirts with these graphics to the demonstrations on Wednesday and Thursday.
The photos on the front of the shirt are closeups of the faces of people who were participating in the actual blockades of clinic doors on Monday and Tuesday. Each of these individuals was either at the door, on the steps, or part of the crowd within about 15 feet of the door.
The woman in the top left corner is Eva Edl, and the white-haired gentleman on the right is the pastor of a Buffalo, New York church.
Reactions to these graphics by the anti-abortion demonstrators has been interesting to say the least! Some are very proud to have been caught on film while blockading a clinic, and some wish to obtain copies of the graphics for themselves. Some are ambivalent, and we've been accused (by the Buffalo pastor, in fact) of having produced the T-shirts only to sell them for profit. Hmmmm...
BARF! on Operation
Sunday, July 13, 1997, 6 pm
Protest at Christ Life Sanctuary, 4555 Marshall Road, Dayton. Please park at either Ireland Park (across Marshall Road) or Ernst Park (behind the church). Call the 24 hour BARFline for detailed information, or view the flyer.
Christ Life Sanctuary
4555 Marshall Road; host of most of the week's activities.
Fred and Katrina Wilson, pastors of Christ Life Sanctuary
Kettering First Church of God
1450 E. Dorothy Lane; hosted a Pastor's Breakfast on June 2. On Sunday July 13, churchgoers here will obviously be told to support Operation Rescue's political agenda.
Far Hills Baptist Church
Miami Valley Pro-Life Alliance held their Life Academy '97 conference here, and the yearly Life Chain demonstration is organized from this church. It is unclear whether or not the church itself directly endorses these activities.
