  •  Zero violence or threats of violence (1+ / 0-)

    It is insane to have to re-state the principle of non-violence in civil protest. Any violence against people or property or threats of it would be absurdly stupid and horrible. The pro-choice women of Texas surely are above any serious consideration of anything close to that. Super obviously, any threats would be taken extremely seriously by first responders and distract resources from real emergencies, like people collapsing in the triple-digit heat or car crashes or accidents/violence involving any of the many guns owned in the state. And also super obviously, any such would reduce the effectiveness of the beautiful movement that is building to assert women's rights of self-determination and full ownership of our bodies. No, in fact, if any violence occurs I would assume it was anti-choice trolls seeking to disrupt peaceable assembly of the good sane progressive people of Texas.
