Lust For Life

We'd thought that if there were at least one thing positive about the Querétaro constitution being rewritten last year to make fertilized human eggs full-fledged citizens of the state, it was that there would be no more reason to have anti-abortion marches here.  And yet just an hour ago a crowd of white-clad zealots carrying a "Yo ♥ La Vida" banner and singing hymns through a four-way loudspeaker on wheels managed to tie up traffic outside our offices and disturb our afternoon meditation.   Is abortion not quite completely illegal enough for these people? 

We suppose that if you want to continue to lead the nation in teenage pregnancies, you've got to rally the troops from time to time. But can't this stuff be restricted to Sunday, when the streets are closed anyway?
