I have been following a blog call SURVIVORS.   Theses are people that stand up for what they believe in.  They don't believe in abortion and they want people to know what really happens to children that get aborted.  The post i'm going to write about is Nine Pro-life jailed in Birmingham Following Arrests on Public Sidewalk.  There are nine young adults arrested for standing in front of a high school with posters of fetus getting aborted.   They weren't doing anything wrong.  They were just passing out literature to students passing by on the sidewalk which is a public place not private property.

They were just expressing themselve.  "Freedom of speech" Right?  Which is what our country is about thats why people come to american.  They had called their attorneys to make sure nothing would happen to them after being threaten numberous times by police.  " After being threatened with arrest if they did not leave the area, the group contacted their attorney, who then assured them that their location on the public sidewalk and their free speech activity was legal according to local and state laws. " 

All nine of them were put into handcuffs. They all complied to what the officer said to do.  They kepted asking what they were being arrested for the officer said your not you are being detained.  (detained for what they didn't do anything WRONG) That just makes me so angry.  Then what gets you is the arresting officer had to ask his supervisor what are we arresting them for 'again'  OMG that would make me to bad. The have video of them being arrested and they did as they were told.  Followed every order.

I so glad that they stood up for what they believe in.  Not a lot of people of do that.  All i can say is that i'm proud of them and keep up the good work.


  1. Yea it is good that people stand up for what they believe in, but sometimes other people can get affended for what they are saying. Everyone is right to have there own opioion.

  2. Thats a load of bull what the cops did. I would be so pissed if i was arested just for talking. Thats a abuse of their power. their to enforce the laws not make them up as they go.

  3. Okay yea i stand up for what i believe BUT i for Abortion i think if u should be able to decide if u want to have a child right now.. yea this was a great blog post. if i would see some talking about how they feel i would stop an just listen because everyone has there right to free speech..
