Yesterday, my boyfriend came across a poster for an anti-abortion rally, to be held here in Bergen on the 16th. He promptly showed it to me, and my gut reaction was to tear it down. I couldn't, however, as it had been put up on the inside of the window of an already-closed shop. I am actually tempted to go to the shop today and discreetly pull it down. When I voiced this desire to my boyfriend, he said something along the line of "we do have freedom of speech in this country, you know". Don't misunderstand, however, it was obvious that he disliked the contents of the poster as well.

These rallies are quite rare in Norway, because we don't have that many fundamental Christians, and I guess if they'd been more common, I wouldn't have reacted so strongly. And it can seem strange that I did react in that way, as I've never had an abortion.

But anyone presuming to have the right to tell me and the rest of the female population what to do with our bodies... This angers me to no end.

And in this case, I don't give a damn about freedom of speech.
