VIRGINIA RESIDENTS COUNTER ELECTION-EVE OBAMA RALLY


Manassas, VA - When Sen. Barack Obama chose Manassas, Virginia, to make his last stand Monday night before the polls opened, he knew well that he was in a very pro-life, conservative area with large numbers of Catholics and homeschoolers. Surprised that Obama would come to their hometown and with just hours to get the word out and secure a city permit, about 70 local residents rallied to protest Obama’s radical positions on abortion.

“Obama wants to prove that Virginia is in play,” said Rosario Reilly, a Catholic homeschooling mother in Manassas who helped organize the rally. “Not in my backyard!”

Protesters noted that roughly one-third of the cars passing by to attend the Obama rally were from Maryland and other states as far away as Michigan. Buses filled with Obama supporters came from Maryland and Pennsylvania.

Protesters carried signs supporting the McCain-Palin ticket and reminding passers-by of the horrors of abortion. Obama has pledged that he will sign the Freedom of Choice Act, which would reduce abortion restrictions and significantly increase the numbers of abortions in the United States.
