  1. Great photos by Gaston Castellanos. And thanks Observer and Jesse for covering this event. I noticed overwhelming support from people in cars going by. So unbelievable that in this day and age women still have to fight for rights even to our own bodies. I loved seeing so many men at the march too. How does a person get in touch with indivisible39?

  2. So Much deception. The vast majority of unwanted pregnancies are due to irresponsibility. To deny this is downright dishonest.

    • Failure to use a condom, eh? I suggest that when puberty has matured, every male should deposit sperm into a secure sperm bank and then get a vasectomy. No more unwanted pregnancies!
