From the Times: Hundreds of thousands of abortion rights supporters rallied Sunday in the nation's capital, protesting the policies of the Bush administration and its conservative allies and vowing to fight back in the November election. The huge crowd marched slowly past the White House, chanting and waving signs like "My Body Is Not Public Property!" and "It's Your Choice, Not Theirs!," then filled the Mall, turning it into a sea of women, men and children for the first large-scale abortion rights demonstration here in 12 years. Organizers asserted that the marchers numbered more than a million, in what they said was a clear demonstration of political clout. Just got back - for now I'll just say it was a tremendously powerful event. More tomorrow...
