CATHOLIC! SCHOOLGIRLS RULE!

Last night, I was walking past Gordon Tech on my way home from work, and there was a whole armada of Catholic anti-abortion activists handing out flyers and pamphlets to the kids. All of them were about the evils of gagortion: how if you have one your life will be ruined; about how partial-birth and soft-tissue abortion is a myth (you know, like Demeter); how OH MY GOD LOOK AT THIS PHOTO OF A VIABLE AND ADORABLE BABY GETTING TORN APART BY RUSTY MEAT CLEAVERS! This morning, on my way back to work, the ground was littered with said booklets, broadsheets and tracts.

The odd thing is, I've been walking past Gordon Tech almost every day for the last three years, and I've lived in this neighborhood for about eight...and I've never seen these dingbats out haranguing teenagers about their reproductive choices until now. And we didn't have an election day yesterday in Chicago, so it wasn't that; besides, high school kids can't vote. (And thank goodness for that, or there would be federally mandated baggy jeans requirements.) So what changed? Funny you should ask: this year, for the first time in its history, Gordon Tech became co-ed; it was a boys' school for six decades before that. And these people weren't handing out Just Say No To Baby-Killing screeds to everyone; they were handing them out to the girls.

Of course, they weren't handing out pro-condom tracts to the boys...
